Confidence in the Integrity of Scripture

So Loved!

May 1, 2018


For 31 years, I knew about God.  I was religious, but did not know God personally. Against all my Catholic teaching, I went to a revival at a Southern Baptist Church. On the third day, the evangelist preached this text:  “For God so loved the world that, He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).


He told the story of a young paperboy living in a cardboard box on the cold windy streets of Chicago. One night, a police officer told the young boy to go down the street and knock on the door of a certain brownstone building. When the woman answers, tell her John 3:16 sent you. She answered the door and when he said, “John 3:16 sent me,” she invited him in. When she asked if he wanted a hot meal, he replied, “Yes, mama, I’d love that.” She made him a big meal and when his belly was full, sitting at the table, he thought, “I don’t understand John 3:16, but it sure makes a hungry boy feel full. “


Later she sat him down by a warm fireplace as he thought, “I don’t understand John 3:16, but it sure makes a cold boy feel warm.” She then asked the young man, “Would you like to take a warm bath?” The young man replied, “I haven’t had a warm bath in weeks.” As he sat in the warm, soapy water, he thought to himself, “I don’t understand John 3:16, but it sure makes a dirty boy feel clean.” After his bath, she asked the young man if he would like to sleep in a soft, feather bed tonight.  He replied, “I can’t remember the last time I slept in a warm bed.” The next morning he awoke thinking to himself, “I don’t understand John 3:16, but it sure makes a tired boy feel rested.” That morning the lady shared with the young man John 3:16. 


When the evangelist finished, I realized that I was that hungry, cold, dirty, tired boy, and only the Jesus

 of John 3:16 could meet all those needs. That was in April 1989, Jesus became my Lord and Savior, and

I haven’t been the same since. Come join us at New Melle Baptist Church and learn more about this

Jesus of John 3:16.
