Have you ever watched a football game and seen someone hold up a sign in the end zone that said: JOHN 3:16? That isn’t the only 3:16 verse that might have a helpful message.
Most people are familiar with John 3:16, which describes God’s gift to us.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will live forever.
Those who have accepted that gift should know the importance of 1 John 3:16, which tells us what we should do with that gift.
We recognize God’s love because he sacrificed his life for us, and we ought to give our lives for the sake of others.
Since all scripture is God-inspired, we can be encouraged by other 3:16 verses.
All scripture is inspired by God, important for teaching, correction, and discipline—for showing people how to live in righteousness. — 2 Timothy
May you find wisdom in all that Jesus said and did, enriching one another’s lives as you teach and encourage people with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, your hearts expressing gratitude to the Lord. — Colossians
Without a doubt, how to be God-like was a great mystery until we saw him in the person of Jesus Christ, who was God in human flesh, perfect in spirit, seen of angels. A messenger to those who didn’t know God, he was believed by many in the world, and then he ascended into glory. — 1 Timothy
Don’t retaliate when people accuse you of wrongdoing. Respond with kindness just as Jesus would, and they will be ashamed of their slander. — 1 Peter
Since you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth like vomit. — Revelation
