“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Some are still wrestling with this promise, one day wondering what kind of fool offer this is, the next wondering what kind of fool would turn it down. Who else can get us home? Who else has turned His grave into a changing closet and offered to do the same with ours? Let’s take Jesus’ offer … we don’t want to miss this chance to see our Father … we need to give God our answer: say yes to Him. Our prayer needs no eloquence, just honesty.
