The world’s most recognizable Bible verse is, of course, John 3:16. It serves as the "Headline", as it were, for the rest of God's Word. This single small verse is so profound that the greatest of theologians cannot fathom its depths; yet the smallest child can understand its basic message.
John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” What a simple and straightforward sentence, designed for any and all clearly to understand! Praise God for such a wonderful statement! Praise God for an all-encompassing message given to us by a loving and merciful God. Indeed, need He say more?
