Verse of the Day (February 26, 2020) #BMSeminary – John introduces the reader to the second of five reasons why Christians love: to follow the supreme example of God’s sacrificial love in sending his Son for us. The judgment of sin on the cross was the supreme example of God’s love, for he poured out his wrath on his beloved Son in place of sinners (John 3:14–16; Rom. 5:8; 2 Cor. 5:21; Eph. 5:1–2; see note on Titus 3:4). only Son. Over half of the NT’s uses of this term are by John (e.g., John 1:14; 3:16; 18). John always uses it of Christ to picture his unique relationship to the Father, his pre-existence, and his distinctness from creation. The term emphasizes the uniqueness of Christ, as the only one of his kind. It was he whom the Father sent into the world as the greatest gift ever given (John 17:3; 2 Cor. 8:9) so that we might have life eternal (cf. John 3:14–15; 12:24). (MacArthur Study Bible)
