John 3:16 "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."
God So Loved The World. This verse reveals the heart and purpose of God - the great truth that motivated His plan of salvation for human kind.
God's love is deep and wide enough to embrace all persons, "the world." (1 Timothy 2:3-4)
God "gave" His Son (who also gave Himself willingly. John 10: 17-18) as an offering to pay the price of the sin (offenses and rebellion against God) of all humanity. This act was one of complete, undeserved love. God did not have to provide this sacrifice for us; it was not something forced upon Him (Romans 8:32)
To believe (Greek pisteuo) includes three main elements:
(a) a faith and confidence that Jesus Christ is God's Son and the only Savior for spiritually lost humanity;
(b) an act of surrender that turns over to Christ the leadership of one's life and an attitude of submission that continues to obey Christ (John 1:1-10)
(c) the trust and assurance that Christ is both able and willing to complete a person's salvation by bringing him or her to live with Him forever in heaven. Keep in mind that to "believe" in the true Biblical sense is not just a mental exercise; it is an active trust that surrenders the leadership of one's life to Christ. Real faith continues to show trust through selfless action, obedience and service (James 2:14-16)
"Perish" is a term in verse 16 that can be easily overlooked in the context of the wonderful gift of grace God offers. It is the tragic consequence of rejecting God (not believing in Him, not surrendering our lives to His leadership, not accepting His gifts of forgiveness and eternal life). To perish does not point to physical death but to the dreadful reality of spiritual death (permanent separation from God) and eternal punishment (Matthew 10:28) "eternal life" is God's gift to those who accept Christ's sacrifice and forgiveness for sins and become "born again" spiritually. It is not something that can be earned by good works or personal effort; is a gift that be received. "Eternal" is more than simply living forever; it is a quality of existence that begins even in this life - it is the opportunity to know God now (John 17:3 ) It is a life that frees us from the power of sin and Satan and allows us to live spiritually beyond earthly things in order to develop an eternal relationship with God. (John 8:34-36)

Book of Matthew Bible Study
I'm excited to announce the new bible study starting soon.
Tailspin Farms Life In Grace will be studying The Book of Matthew.
NOTE: THIS IS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY AND DOES NOT INCLUDE A PHYSICAL COPY OF THE BIBLE STUDY.
The Gospel of Matthew
he Word Gospel. The first book of the English Bible that most of us read from is the Gospel of Matthew. Matthew is the first of the four gospel writings, yet there is only one gospel about Jesus Christ and there are four different writers: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The word "Gospel" means "good news", and the good news is about Jesus Christ dying on the cross and then 3 days later conquering death and rising from the dead, offering salvation to all mankind, this is the Gospel.
I hope you that you'll participate in this 15-week series.
Matthew has 28 chapters. For the in-depth study the 154-page eBook will help with your study.

Book of Micah Bible Study
Here at Tailspin Farms Life in Grace Bible Study series we are starting the book of MICAH!
The book of MICAH is from the Old Testament.
The book of Micah contains many warnings of doom and prophecies of hope.
In this study on Micah I hope to provide an overview and lessons we can learn from the book of Micah.
The prophet Micah was from the small town of Moresheth Gath in southern Judah, a productive agricultural area about 25 miles southwest of Jerusalem.
Like Amos, he came from the rural countryside, probably from a family of humble status. While the prophet Isaiah was in Jerusalem addressing the king and international affairs,
Micah was a country prophet who was deeply sensitive to the social issues that affected the small towns and villages throughout Judah.
I invite you to go through this Bible Study with me.
