“Why A Loving God Matters Most” pt 2 

We let God Love us first so that we can learn to love God and then from His Love in us we are compelled to love others. 

John 3:16 NIV 

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

I John 4:10 NIV 

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 

I John 4:19 NLT 

We love each other because he loved us first. 

What do the words “Love of God” in John 3:16 mean? Does God love everyone unconditionally? 

1. God loves the World. 

2. God’s love is powerful. 

3. God’s love, not our good deeds, is the doorway relationship. 

4. God’s love is indiscriminate. 

Questions to answer from John 3:16

There is only one sin that people go to hell for and that is rejecting Jesus Christ. 

God’s love is unconditionally available. 

but it's not unconditionally attainable. 

John 3:16-19 NKJV 

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
