You gave your only Son

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; NIV).

Lord,

You gave your only Son
To live and die for all,

And then you raised him
From the dead,

For we still hear
His call.

Lord,

You sent your only Son
To claim us as his own,

And now he waits
Within us all,

To make our hearts
His home.

Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them” (John 14:23; NLT).
