Alive To God – Daily Thought

ENGLISH

John 3:16

‘For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.’

  • This is the season of giving of gifts to those near and dear to us.
  • We do this a demonstration of our love for those we care for.
  • God also loved us with such a great love that He too gave us a gift.
  • The gift was His only Son and with that gift came the promise of eternal life.

Prayer: Lord, I rejoice in Your great love towards me. You have given me the greatest gift of all and my life is changed as a result! May I never forget the gift You gave and may my giving to others be a result of the example that You have set for me. Amen.

Johannes 3:16

‘Want so lief het God die wêreld gehad dat Hy sy eniggebore Seun gegee het, sodat elkeen wat in Hom glo, nie verlore mag gaan nie, maar die ewige lewe kan hê.’

  • Hierdie is die seisoen waarin ons geskenke aan ons geliefdes gee.
  • Ons doen dit om ons liefde vir hulle waarvoor ons omgee, te demonstreer.
  • God het ons ook met so ‘n groot liefde lief gehad dat Hy ook vir ons ‘n geskenk gegee het.
  • Die geskenk was Sy enigste Seun en saam met daardie geskenk het Hy ons ook die belofte van die ewige lewe gegee.

Gebed: Vader, Ek is verheug oor U groot liefde teenoor my. U het my die grootste geskenk ooit gegee en as gevolg daarvan is my lewe verander!  Mag ek nooit die geskenk wat U gegee het, vergeet nie and mag  die geskenke wat ek vir ander gee wees as gevolg van die voorbeeld wat U vir my gestel het. Amen.
