He loves the world because He created it.

Our heavenly Father chose to give us an incredibly special gift- His Son—Jesus. He did not scold us, His children, nor did he punish us.

God gave us an incredibly special gift. He gave us a part of Himself. He shared with us—His children—His only Son.

Everlasting life is a reward given to us by our Lord. He gives it to each of us for standing for Him, obeying Him, and living for Him in all we do. We receive everlasting life when we are taken home to live with Jesus.
