Promise of the Week: John 3:16 – Eternal Life

Promises & Love, London view from the Shard by Harlem Loves

Apparently there are over 7000 promises in the Bible. Over 7000 instances of God giving us an assurance of something he will do or that will happen. Actual promises!

I wanted to spend a season fully recognising and claiming these promises. I’m hoping to share these every week (given my recent blogging track record that will be quite an achievement!) as I thought it’d be a good note to start the week on.

Love promises

For now I’m looking at promises about love so where better to start than with John 3:16:

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.

 or as I sometimes like to read these promises:

For God so loved [your name] that he gave his one and only Son, that should [your name] believe in him [your name] will not perish but have eternal life.

And what’s so great about the eternal life God has promised to you? Revelation 21:4 explains:

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

Yes please!
