Today, I’m pleased to share an excerpt (Day 21, to be precise) of the newly released book A Story of God and All of Us Reflections: 100 Daily Inspirations based on the Epic TV Miniseries “The Bible” by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett. This book is a companion to the hit television series THE BIBLE, which recently aired on The History Channel. Lisa

“For God So Loved The World that he gave his one and Only Son , That Whoever Believes In Him shall Not Perish  but have Eternal Life.” John 3:16

DevotionalsThis is the most well-known Bible verse in the world.  It is one of our favorites as well.  In my career as an actress, I am probably most known for my role as Monica on Touched By An Angel.  For almost ten years on a weekly basis, I had the joy of delivering the message, “God Loves You.”  I imagine the reason John 3:16 is the most well-known verse in the Bible, and also the most loved verse, is because it clearly expresses the words I had the privilege of communication.

If there is one unifying thought with which we wanted to permeate The Bible, it is this reality that God loves every person on the face of the Earth.  God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son.

We hope that people will experience the truth of God’s love through The Bible series.  It is the message that motivates us in all we do.  They are the words that inspire and strengthen us, encourage and raise us up.  We pray that as you read this devotional day by day, you will hear these words and remember that God loves you.  He so loved you that he gave his one and only Son.

Heavenly Father, thank you for your love.  We marvel that you loved us enough to send Jesus.  We are so grateful that as we open our lives to you, you pour your love into our hearts.  Help us experience your life today and every day.  Amen.
