~ God Cares About You! ~
The Basic Message ~ Jesus said, “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man [Jesus] be lifted up [on the Cross], that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 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. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 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” (John 3:14-18).
The Testimonial of Millions ~ The Song of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, has been the song of countless millions since. “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded my lowly state … For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name. And His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation. … He has filled the hungry with good things … He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy, as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever” (Luke 1:46-55).
Does God Really Care About You? ~ “Then He said to His disciples, ‘Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?’” (Luke 12:22-28).
What’s Your Experience / Testimony? ~ Are you at peace with God? Do you know His love experientially in your life? He is waiting for you to respond to Him. Will you?
the key question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). This is the most important question you will ever answer. If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
