John 3:16 – Christmas #2

We couldn’t do a week about God’s love and not talk about John 3:16. It is probably the most well-known verse in the bible.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that anyone who believed in him could have eternal life.” – John 3:16

The first section of this verse says “For God so Loved the World” this is a reminder that just like a parent loves their child God loves the world. The Latin word “Storge”  means the love shared between parents and there children and I think the word I think this best sums up the love that God has for us.

The second part of this verse says “he gave his only son” this again shows us just how much he loves us and that he would give anything to be with us,

The third and final part of this verse says “so that anyone who believed in him could have eternal life.” This is a reminder the reason why God sent his son to earth and that if we believe in God we will have eternal life with God in heaven.

Have a great day and remember to follow us, to get an email delivered when each post is uploaded. Before you go today, here is a short video which will make you laugh and is related to everything we have talked about today.

24 sleeps to go!

NEW PAGE: Suggestions

Suggestions Box

Whoever you are, this post is for you. All I am asking for is two minutes of your time to read this post and then however long it takes you afterwards (if you have the time available), to submit a suggestion. In return the RCG Team will read and try as hard as we can to put your suggestions into action. As RCGhub is a hub, it is everyone’s website, a space on the internet where you can share  your views and learn from others. Because of this we will happily change something about RCG, even if it just helps one person strengthen their relationship with God.

Anyway, this post is about the new suggestions page. We have created this page so that anyone who follows, or even just looks at RCGhub, can anonymously submit and suggestion they want, directly to the RCG Team. How ever big or small, we will listen and try to put into action all of the suggestions submitted. You don’t need to enter an email either, just revisit the page, around a week after submitting a suggestion and if we have done something about it, we will have written what we did, or are going to do, at the bottom of the page.

The box on the new page is for suggestions for something you would like us to write a post about, or a change to the layout of the blog, or the topic of a series, or any other suggestion that you can think of. Got something else to contact us about that isn’t a suggestion? Find all the different ways you can contact us on the ‘Contact/Follow Us’ page.
