It just dawned on me, when I hear of see people quote John 3:16 the only part that is quoted is “For God so loved the word that He gave His only begotten Son…..”. I realize because I hear or see that some much that is all I know. There is more to the scripture. Yes, we know that God loves us by giving His Son, but he didn’t give us His just because love us. He gave us His Son so that we would believe in Him THEN so we may HAVE everlasting life. God’s love is so much deeper than we may know and can comprehend. God gives us love, so just accept it. Next time you hear or see someone half-quote John 3:16 know that there is more to that scripture and remind them as well.
(John 3:16) 16 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.
