God’s heart is for the world. Ever since the beginning, when Adam and Eve first rebelled by giving into the passion to be like God, God has been wooing the world back to himself. God’s passion for us is so great, that he has gone to the ends of the earth for us–defeating death itself. It is because of God’s great passion that we can experience true life.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
