For God So Loved ...

For God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. – JOHN 3:16

­This has to be one of the best loved and known Bible verses. It has been called a love letter from God written in blood and given as a gift for all. We see John 3:16 written on signs in sporting arenas, we teach it to our children and we find comfort in those 24 words in this verse. Martin Luther called John 3:16 the miniature Gospel. In this verse alone one can sum up the entire Gospels and share it with others in a nonthreatening and powerful way. It is the one verse that has transformed my ministry and has given me purpose. I constantly use this verse at

Men’s Breakfasts. I begin with, “For God so loved …” and I wait to have the men finish… “the world.” God did not send the gift of his son to a certain people or just to me and my friends, but God gave the gift of his son for all. Th­ose 24 words define how I see the world and how I am called to share that gift of Christ to all. I invite you to mediate on these words and to look at the world with God’s eyes … love, flaws, and all. – PASTOR BAKKEN
