What Does It 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. – John 3:16
When did this Scripture become real to you? For me, it was just a few years ago. I accepted Christ at nine, but for most people, John 3:16 means little other than that Jesus died for them.
Let me tell you what it means to me: it means that God Himself took on human form, was born and died, living a sinless life. Because there is no way I could pay for my sins except to die, He died for me. He took the punishment and wrath for my sins. He died for those He created. He gave His life for me. It means that I am righteous because I am washed in Christ’s blood–not once until I sin again but forever. Only Christ’s blood makes me righteous.
That’s what John 3:16 means to me. What does it mean to you?
