"For God so loved the world..." God's heart has been and always will be for "the world". He longs for intimacy with His children. The message He has for the world is a message of grace, mercy, love and hope.
It begins with relationship. Jesus communicated this so clearly when asked what the “greatest commandment” was. His response to this question, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind...and love your neighbor as yourself.” Love God and love others.
As we love God and love others our hearts begin to beat with God’s heart. We begin to desire the things He desires. We realize God’s love for us is not just for us, but for the world. It was never God’s intent for us to simply be recipients of His love, but to be conduits of that love to the world.
