"that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16

Prior to all the high end technology we have today, it was not possible to discover if a woman was having a boy or a girl. Parents had to wait nine long months to find out, and it was always the biggest news of the day. Family and friends would hover near the hospital doors waiting breathlessly for the announcement: "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" Today, parents don't have to wait; they can find out while the baby is still forming whether it's a boy or a girl, and they share with the world, all across social media, in the most creative ways, the biggest news of the day! In this passage, Jesus just declared the greatest news in the history of mankind! "If you believe, you will have eternal life!" Not many people are breathlessly waiting to hear about their destiny, but those of us who have believed and received Jesus have been given the opportunity to share the greatest news ever declared, every time we have the opportunity!

What are some obstacles you feel stop you from sharing this great news? Ask God to help you overcome whatever is holding you back.

Radical Generosity

"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son" - John 3:16

There are few feelings in life that compare with the joy that is found when giving a loved one a special gift. That act impacts both the person receiving the gift and the one giving it. Spiritually, the Gospel at its core is a message of generosity. Did you hear it? John wrote the words, "that He gave." We are the humble recipients of God's gracious gift of His Son. And a characteristic of our lives, which results from receiving this gift, is an attitude of radical generosity. We are never more like Jesus than when we give. Part of sharing in the mission locally and globally is giving through the local church as an investment in God's activity.

What are some ways you can live generously as it pertains to investing in God's activity in the world?
