“God so loved the world, he gave his only Son, so that whoever believes in him shall not die but have eternal life”
It trips off the tongue; it sounds familiar, comforting, and hopeful
But to an un-churched person; or even a churched person – what does it mean?
When we say God so loved the world – what does that mean?
If we really, truly believe in God’s amazing, eternal, unending, unconditional love for creation – how do we live that out, and let people know they are welcome?
People we don’t necessarily like
People we make us feel uncomfortable
People who are noisy, or distracting, people who live differently to us
Because if we are really talking about all God’s people – then it includes all of those too
Not just the known and loved amongst us
