Take it personally

What does John 3:16 mean to you?

"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." (NKJV)

God wants you to know for certain that you have eternal life.  The Bible assures us that we can know God and have eternal life. 

John 3:16 tells us that:

God gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to live for us and die for our sins on the Cross (see also Romans 5:8).

  • We must believe in Jesus in order to have eternal life.  The word “believe” means that we must commit our life to Him and follow Him as our Lord and our God.
  • Believing in Jesus means we will not “perish,” meaning we won’t spend all of our life and all eternity separated from the presence of God in hell.
  • When we turn our life over to Jesus by believing in Him, He gives us “everlasting life.”  Everlasting life begins the moment you believe in Jesus and begin to follow Him, and it continues into heaven itself.

God loves each of us.  He loves every person in the world.

Would you like to believe in Jesus and turned your life over to Him?   If you would like to know Jesus right now, you can pray and ask him to come into your life, cleanse you of your sin, and save your soul. 

Pray this prayer now and begin taking God's gift of eternal life personally:

“Dear heavenly Father, thank you for loving me.  Please forgive me for living my life without believing in Jesus and obeying you.  Jesus, I believe in you.  I believe you died on the Cross for my sin.  I believe you were raised from the dead.  Come into my life.  Forgive me of my sin and save my soul.  Thank you for saving me.  Amen.”

What John 3:16 means to this lonely old sinner:
This verse and scripture tells me that the good father upstairs died for us on the cross, died
for our sins and transgretions. He also lets us know that he will come again ; to cleanse his world
and call all his children home ( when all god's sinners get home).
