John 3:16 First of all Genesis 1:26 reads;
Let us make man in our image according to our likeness.
This in itself is evidence enough to prove that ‘God loved us since day one’ . A further look at John 3:16 gives us full assurance to this unconditional love and it reads;
For God so loved the world , that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
A closer read at the whole chapter will give us an understanding that it was love that motivated this selfless sacrifice by the most high God. On account of his love, He could not afford to lose his children. Hence, He was compelled to give his
Son for the people’s salvation. Although sin has taken over our mindset, the love of God was always and is still there for us to set us aside from destruction.
