A popular statement of God’s love for the world comes from John 3:16:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
But the next verse (John 3:17) reminds us that Christ’s life and example of love is unconditional and free from condemnation. As the Church, we live, worship, grow, and serve in this true example of love as we work to be the hands, feet, heart, and voice of God in a world that is being healed through that same unconditional love. It is love that reaches every man, woman, and child and helps them find a place and purpose in life.
