David Jeremiah Devotional 2 January 2023 MESSAGE
The Gideons International is best known for their Gideons Bibles. Since 1908, Gideons have placed Bibles in hotel and motel rooms for guests to read. On the inside cover, printed in a multitude of languages, is the text of John 3:16. When travelers from around the world open a Gideons Bible in their hotel room, they will find the verse, in a familiar language, that says God loves them.
John 3:16 is perhaps the best-known and most-loved verse of Scripture—the most concise rendering of the Gospel message in one verse. Entire sermons can be preached on the truths contained in this one verse. But for individual readers here is the message: God loves you. If you are in “the world,” God loves you. And He proved His love by sending His only Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for your sins and promise you eternal life (1 John 4:9-10).
Are you in the world today? If so, God loves you. Respond to His love by believing in His Son.
Since God had a Son of his own, and such a Son—how wonderful God’s love in adopting us!

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
