The Amish Voice 6



this is the world's most well known Scripture.

Brief and to the point, Jesus revealed God's great love.

1. The fact: God so loved (v.16).

2. The evidence: God gave (v.16).

3. The purpose: to save (v.16).

4. The proof: God sent His Son (the Incarnation) (v.17).

5. The means: through Him (v.17).

1. (3:16) God, Love of: God so loved the world. He loved the whole

world. Note several facts.

1. The idea that God loves the whole world is a new idea. The Jews

believed God loved the religious (the true Jew) and hated the non-

religious (the Gentiles). The same thoughts are held by many in every

generation, especially by religionists. The fact that God truly loves is

shocking to many. Some wonder and others question how God could

possibly love the…

Thought 1.

God loves every man, not just the religious and the good.

He does not love only the people who love Him. He loves everyone,

even the unlovely and the unloving, the unbelieving and the obstinate,

the selfish and the greedy, the spiteful and the vengeful.

And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I

must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one

fold, and one shepherd" (John 10:16).

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the

same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whoso-

ever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans


"Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the

knowledge of the truth" (1 Tim. 2:4).

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count

slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any

should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

2. The basis of God's love is His nature. God is love (1 John 4:8, 16);

therefore, He loves. He acts, demonstrates, and shows His love.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were

yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love....And we

have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is

love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in

him" (1 John 4:8, 16).

3. Love acts; it expresses itself. Love does not sit still, doing nothing. It

is not dormant, complacent, inactive. If love actually exists, it has to

act and express itself; it has to do something good. Love is loving;

that is, love is always demonstrating love to others. Therefore, God's

love acts and reveals Him to be love.

Thought 1.

God wants man to know His love. He wants to reach

everyone in the world with His love.

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life

for us" (1 John 3:16).

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that

God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live

through him" (1 John 4:9).


(3:16) God Loved:

past tense. A past, proven fact. An outline of the

greatness of God’s love is seen in this verse. (1) Height: God loved. (2)

Depth: so loved (3) Length: God gave (4) Breadth: Whoever. (See

note—Jn 21:15-17)

2. (3:16) God, Love, of: there is the evidence of God's love—God gave

His only begotten Son. Note several points.

God demonstrated His love in the most perfect way possible: He

gave His only begotten Son to the world. As God, He is perfect,

which means His love is perfect. Therefore, God not only loves, but

He so loves. He loves to perfection, loves to the ultimate degree.

Whatever the ultimate degree and the perfect act and expression of

love is, God shows it. Without question, the greatest act of love is

the sacrifice of a man's own life; therefore, God sacrificed the life of

His own Son to save man.

If you are one of those people who is serious about studying and understanding God’s Word, but sometimes need

just a little bit of help understanding what you read, then I would like to recommend to you one of the Christian's

greatest and most trusted tools available in our generation. From the very first time I was introduced to the POSB

illustrations (see sample of John 3:16-17 below). I also like the way this commentary brings in other scriptures to

go along with what you are studying. What I would like for you to prayerfully consider is; buy one book and see for

yourself how great they are. I promise, you’ll have a hard time laying it down. You will learn so much!
