Scripture: JOHN 3:16
Broadcast date: 09/19/2016

The other day I read about a little four-year-old girl who was just learning her numbers.  To demonstrate to her mother just how much she knew about her numbers, she said, “Mommy, I love you ten times!” The little girl thought a moment or two and said, “No, that’s not right Mommy. I love you a hundred and ten times.” Another moment and the little girl told her mother, “No. That’s not right. Mommy. I love you more than all the numbers in the world!”
Isn’t that beautiful? I thought, that is just the way God loves His children. The hymnist, Frederick Lehman, tried to express it when he wrote: “Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade; To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, Tho’ stretched from sky to sky.” Another way to say it is, “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).

Get your numbers straight.

Ask Jesus to come into your heart.
