Daily Devotional • John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  - John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

- John 3:16

As God’s child, you are a new creation.

Did you know that a caterpillar and butterfly’s DNA are the same? The caterpillar only needs to go through the difficulties of the cocoon to mature and emerge as a butterfly.

Before long, the caterpillar isn’t crawling on the ground; it is soaring through the air on beautiful wings.

That is what Jesus does for us.

He gives us a new life.

He sets us free.

Like the caterpillar, we become a new creation when we accept Christ into our lives.

To help us better understand, God gives us a new identity. He calls us, His children.

Just like the caterpillar becomes a butterfly, we become God’s children empowered with His Holy Spirit.

When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we have a new identity in Him. We are loved, forgiven, and accepted into God’s family.

In addition, God gives us the Holy Spirit to comfort and be with us.

  • Hebrews 13:5 tells us that God will never leave us or forsake us.
  • Romans 8:38-39 tells us that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
  • In Proverbs 18:24, we are told that Jesus sticks closer to us than a brother would. As His friend, we can always count on Him.

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for loving and accepting me. I love you, Lord, Amen. 

With Love,
Sherry Shepherd
