For God so loved the world, that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
John 3:16 AMP
This great love dispels all doubts about our eternal destination. God so dearly loved the world that He paid the ultimate sacrifice; His one and only, unique son. This was so that we could avoid and escape judgment and destruction. We can now enjoy eternal life with Him. Even when our hearts were so far away from Him, long before we received salvation, the Father yearned for us. He wanted us to be loved, saved and delivered from eternal death. He adores us! The dear Lord Jesus came to this hostile, broken world with only one motive. He came to die for us and reveal the Father’s heart of love for us. How could anyone reject His love? Most certainly the only place to be is resting in the Father’s love and being forever with the Lord for all eternity.
