“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 (NIV)
If you’ve seen that Bible verse, you’re definitely not the only one. It is the very basis from which Christianity was born. We can pray and ask for forgiveness, but without Jesus, we simply cannot bridge the gap between our lives and Heaven. Jesus did that for us.
It is hard to live for God. It is easy to live for ourselves. However, if we choose to live for God and Jesus, we can find that the rewards go far beyond recognition. If it’s been a while since you’ve opened up that Bible, go ahead and crack it open, take a peek and allow your heart to feel the text.
