John 3:16

Most of my life, I didn’t know much about God, Jesus, or the bible’s countless verses

But I remembered John 3:16; it stayed with me through life’s many challenging courses

How it just smoldered there within me and occasionally was brought to mind

That God so loved the world, He sacrificed the most precious thing He could find


I use to quote it, to prove I knew about Him, but I never really understood

The sacrifice He made for my salvation; the key to my future and livelihood

Over time the light from that one passage grew into a blaze that consumed my heart

He knew it would, all those many years ago when he placed it there from the start


I always felt that He was with me, but never quite sure if my eternity was in danger

The Spirit made it clear when I accepted the truth about Jesus from His beginning in the manger

For I’ve always believed, prayed, and had faith in God in good times and times of strife

But it was by God’s grace and belief in His Son that I secured the promise of an everlasting life



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. John 3:16
