God’s motivation in His plan for you is His love for you.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Jesus taught that God the Father actually loves you as much as He loves Jesus.
John 17:20, 23b New Living Translation I am praying not only for these disciples, but also for all who will ever believe in me because of their testimony… then the world will know that You sent Me and will understand that You love them as much as You love Me.
His Plan For You is the Abundant Life.
Jesus clearly defined the quality of life in God’s plan for you: John 10:10 I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Abundantly means: Superabundance, excessive, overflowing, surplus, over and above, more than enough, profuse, extraordinary, above the ordinary, more than sufficient.
The Abundant Life means: A life that supersedes the ordinary life you would normally live; an over and above life that overflows with good.
So God has a great benefit package for you. The Bible is God's Word for God’s benefit package of salvation.
Salvation means: Deliverance, preservation, liberation, safety, soundness, prosperity, well-being, and wholeness.
Salvation is God’s free gift to you. You don’t deserve it. You can’t earn it. You could never be good enough for it. It is available only by God’s grace.
Grace means: You weren’t capable of getting it for yourself, so Jesus got it for you and gave it to you as a gift.
Ephesians 2:8,9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
So receive it and enjoy it and give God praise for it in your life.
