for John 3:16
thought & prayer
Alexander MacLaren (1826–1910), in Expositions of Holy Scripture, said this about what it means to know that God loves . . .
“God loves” is the greatest thing that can be said by lips. . . . If we would try to think of what it means, the whole truth would flash up into fresh newness, and all the miseries and sorrows and perplexities of our lives would drift away down the wind, and we should be no more troubled with them.
