Lent 2009 (22) – A classic

God loved the world so much that he gave his only son, so that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

Notice that it doesn’t say, “God loved the Church so much”, or “God loved religious people so much”. No, God loved the world so much that he gave his son, so that whoever believes in him should not perish. This is good news for everyone.

Someone once said that evangelism is “just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread”. Jesus died for everyone, whether they know it or not, so that they might not die, but might have eternal life! That’s something worth sharing!
