This is today's short thought by Dr. David Jeremiah featuring nationally known athlete Tim Tebow. Timing is right, following last weekends Super Bowl game.
3:16 Eye Blacks
"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 he was playing football for the Florida Gators, Tim Tebow decided to write Bible verses on his eye blacks, and one Saturday he chose John 3:16. It was a televised game, and Tebow later learned 94 million people googled 'John 3:16; during the game. How do 94 million people not know John 3:16?
* According to John 3:16, God's love is EXTENSIVE. For God so loved the (whole) world. HIs love extends to every tribe and nation, to every believer and non-believer.
* His love is EXPENSIVE. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son... The Lord loved us enough to sacrifice His own Son for us.
* "His loves is EXPANSIVE. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him....'Whoever' is a wonderfully inclusive word that reaches all who respond.
* God's love is ETERNAL...that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Because of Christ we have an endless life of blessing. What a message to share with the millions who need John 3:16!"
"What a big God that we serve. I'm out playing a silly game, and I put these things under my eyes. It's amazing what God can do." ~ Tim Tebow
