The promise of the U.S. Constitution is enshrined in the Preamble: “We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Some people would say that the primary purpose God entered human history is spelled out in John 3:16: “God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” We believe this is the heart of God’s purpose because the message comes from the Creator of the universe—from Almighty God. It offers the solution for humanity’s greatest enemy—death. It tells us that the perfect payment for humanity’s greatest debt has been paid—the death of God’s own Son. It promises to satisfy the greatest longing of the human heart—never-ending joy. It offers the only escape from humanity’s greatest fear—separation from the God of love. It explains the only way this precious gift can be obtained—faith in God’s Son who took our place when He died on the Cross. We find all those truths right there—in John 3:16.
