John 3:16. For this is the way God loved the world:He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes him will not perish but have eternal life.

Re read this verse. Do you see anything wrong? So often our mind,ears and eyes can deceive us. We think we know this verse so well that we might be reading what isn’t there Let’ story again.

John 3:16. For this is the way God loved the world:He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes him will not perish but have eternal life. Do you see the difference? The first tome I omitted a word. It was only a little 2 letter word. Surely that can”t be important. But it is a very important little word. The word “in” changes the meaning of the entire verse. Satan believes, actually knows, Jesus is God’s Son and was sent to us so we could have eternal life. Believing that fact doesn’t give us eternal life. We must believe IN Jesus. To believe IN means we place our complete trust in Him. It means we will follow wherever He leads us. Being in church every Sunday won’t do it. Giving money or doing “good” for others won’t do it. The only way into the eternal presence of God is through belief IN His Son, Jesus. Our question is do we really believe IN Jesus or are we believing and trying to earn our way into heaven? Let us meditateon the difference today.
