III. THE EXPRESSION OF LOVE
"Only begotten" μονογενης. Unique, One of a kind
John 1:1 & 14
Acts 2:23 - “And this man delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge Of God!”
Revelation 13:8 - “And all who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the lamb who has been slain.”
Revelation 13:8 - “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
IV. THE EXPECTATION OF HIS LOVE
Faith: “Taking God at His word”
John 3:14 - “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.”
Numbers 21:8-9 - “Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a standard; and it shall come about, that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, he will live.” And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived.”
Truth: Faith in Jesus doesn’t just mean acknowledging that He can save me, but it also means acknowledging what He is saving me from.
Romans 3:23 - “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23 - “The wages of sin is death.”
