FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD --- John 3:16-18.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should nor perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned." --- John 3:16-18.

Oh that these truly precious words were ever warmly impressed on our hearts; That they were our last thoughts at night, and the first at our waking in the morning, and that they were improved in such a manner as to make our dying bed easy in the evening of our life, and to ensure our rising with gladness in the morning of the resurrection!

And what more blessed and delightful meditations can I daily dwell upon than to think thus: God has loved me, even me, when I was his enemy; and so loved me, that he gave me his only Son!

"Bless me with faith in Christ, then Christ is mine, and all things are mine; 1 Corinthians 3:21.; for "He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" Romans 8:32.

He will never suffer a believing soul to perish; he has passed his word for it. It is he that says, "I shall not perish, I shall not be condemned," but have everlasting life, if I believe. This will I build and depend upon to my last moments, as upon an immovable rock. Amen and Amen.

Oh, for this love let earth and skies
With hallelujahs ring,
And the full choir of human tongues
All hallelujahs sing!
