John 3:16 – Today We Remember What God Did For Us

Today I am over whelmed with feelings of how much God really loves us, the pain He endured for our SINS, and the sacrifice that was made so we could have eternity with God!

He sent His only Son, Jesus to DIE for US, to take OUR place so that we might have a chance to be with Him forever. (John 3:16)


When you truly sit, be quite, and think about that sacrifice, how does it make you feel? Words cant even express how grateful and thankful I am that someone loves me THAT MUCH to provide a way of REST and PEACE!

We remember:


the betrayal from Judas over 30 peaces of silver

the meeting with Pilate

the beating and the mocking

the crown of thorns

the shouts “Crucify Him”

the long walk through Golgotha carrying His own cross

the nails in His hands and feet

the sad words Jesus spoke “My God, My God why have you forsaken me?”

Jesus saying “It is finished”

Do you embrace the last words spoke on the cross? “It is finished”, Jesus said. John 19:30 No matter what you have done in your life, it is PAID IN FULL by Jesus because He paid for all of your sins when you accept His free gift!
When we think we are not worthy, feel unloved, don’t fully understand what God did for us, I believe that we take away the very importance of the CROSS and what Jesus did for us.

What God did was love us SO MUCH, that He knew the only way we could be with Him, was through His only Son, Jesus Christ!

If it were not for God loving me so much to send Jesus, I would not have the chance to have a life of eternity with Him. I find REST in my Savior through His sacrifice and Today I Remember!

Have you received Gods gift of salvation? Do you believe that he died, rose and lives today? If you have put your faith in Jesus Christ then your sins have been forgiven but if you have not done this, I John 5:12 says “you do not have eternal life.” if you have never accepted the free gift that God has offered you of eternal life which only comes through faith in his Son Jesus, I BEG you to DO IT TODAY!



If you have any questions please talk with your pastor, a friend who is in love with Jesus or send me an email.


As I leave you tonight take a moment to meditate on what Jesus went through and see how much He Loves us not matter what burden we carry around He waiting to take you in and forgive us. When we repent and take up His cross His plan will start to take form. Trusting in Him whole heartily is what THIS life is all about when we follow Him.



Remember today what God did for you, meditate on Him, Thank Him for loving us SO much, and most of all don’t go another day without accepting His FREE gift that Jesus has to offer you. He didn’t go to the cross in vain, He went to the CROSS for YOU and ME!!!

Loving Him Greatly,

All regular posting will resume next week. I wanted to focus on Holy Week to share with you what we do in our home to celebrate Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. I hope it brings you much great comfort to know there are a ton of things that can be done with our kids to show them what God did for us by sending Jesus to die for us.
