Sunday Musings: John 3:16

Source

This month, people will talk about the greatest love stories ever known. But there’s one love story that, to me, stands out above all others.

John 3:16 is a verse most of us know, and for most of us, it was the first verse you memorized. But have you ever thought about what the verse really means?

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him shall have everlasting life.”

If I were to put this verse in our daily vernacular, it might look like this: Because God loves us so much, he gave his only son to die for our sins. Those who believe in Him shall have eternal life in Heaven.

God gave us his only son so we could be with Him forever in Heaven. All we have to do is trust and believe.

What greater love story exists than this one?
