John 3:16

Hi guys! About three Wednesday’s ago, I told you I was going to share Lisa Hammer’s write up on forgiveness with you. I apologise for not sharing it when I said I would. Here is the write up. It’s better late than never right?


Who am I?
Have you ever wondered why God
loves us so much?
I mean who am I to deserve that kind of Love?
I walk around this world so aimlessly.
Who am I ?
I know what I am, a sinner
Doing things I know I will regret,
But God still loves me.

I spend my days and time on things that won’t bring glory unto him.
Forgetting to pray in the morning because instagram is more important.
Investing my energy in people and things I know that won’t appreciate me or bother to do the same.
But he still loves me.
Committing the same sins over and over again,
Making me feel an enormous amount guilt in his presence.
Being too afraid to face him.
Believing that he has some sort of hate towards me,
But he doesn’t , he loves me unconditionally.
Who am I to deserve his love
I said who am I?
Who am I ?

Then I hear his voice telling me
You are my child,
My priced possession;
My love,
You have a purpose in this world,
And I will love you through everything.
You may commit sin,
But don’t you remember that I came and took those sins away,when I died on the cross for you my child?
Don’t stray away from me because you feel guilty
Come talk to me,
Tell me what you are doing, I will not hate you.
For I will always love the sinner but hate the sin.
Let’s have a conversation.

I will always love you.
For you are my child born into a righteous family.
All I want is for you to have a relationship with me
For I already have a place for you prepared in heaven
You are so important to me,
You are my child,
And I love you.

Then I realise who I am
I’m a chosen one,by the almighty God
His prized possession
And I have purpose to fufil .
I’m a princess and my father is the most high king.
I will put all my hope in him,
Because he is the one that believes in me the most.
I will not let the one that hates my father so much, put doubts in my head.
For I know my father loves me regardless
I know who I am!
I am someone worth dying for.
He died for me so that I would be saved
And nothing can make me feel more special like the verse in John 3:16 does.

That says ” For God so loved the world that he gave his one
only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

    Thank you so much for this Lisa.

    Alot of us can recite John 3:16 off the top of our heads, but at some point, we stopped looking at the meaning. The verse just became something we could easily recite. Thank you for making me look at what it says again. By giving up his son, God was saying to you and I that we are forgiven. That nothing we do can ever take away that forgiveness factor because his son has already died for us. He has already paid the price, so whether or not you choose to accept the forgiveness, the forgiveness is right there because the blood of Jesus will always be available.

    God bless you Lisa. I look forward to more of you contributions on this blog.

    I love this article! Thank you Lord for loving me and wanting to have a conversation with me despite my many faults. Even when I feel too ashamed to approach Him , I know He still wants to hear from me and forgive me. Thank you Lord.

      Hmmmm! You are right Temitope. It’s amazing to know God’s throne is always approachable. No matter how long we have turned our backs on him, He already gave us his son, so he is always ready to welcome us home. Nobody is too dirty for the master not to love.

      Thank you for reading.
