PPIL - Powerful Passage Impacting Life
John 3:16 NKJV - "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."
Jesus Christ is God's Valentine to the world! To show the world that God loves each and every person, He sent His Son. To show the world that God desires each person to be His child, He sent His Son. To show the world that God wants to forgive, He sent His Son. To show the world all the wonderful attributes of love described in the Love Chapter, 1 Corinthians 13, He sent His Son.
To show the world and the angels in glory that God could redeem and justify fallen mankind, He sent His Son. To show the devil that God had victory over him, He sent His Son. To show the world that God did not forget about them, He sent His Son. To show the world that God could do everything necessary to save the world, God sent His Son.
When I was five, in March of 1953, my pastor, Charles P. Benedict, showed me this verse and personalized it so I would understand, "that God so loved Steve, that He sent His only begotten Son, that if Steve would believe in Him, Steve would not perish but Steve would have everlasting life." I received Jesus Christ into my heart and have never forgotten the POWER of John 3:16 to IMPACT my LIFE!! May you find this Valentine to be your special Valentine from God!
