For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
– John 3:16
John 3:16 is probably the most beautiful and hopeful verse written in the Bible. I’ve been told it pretty much sums up, in one sentence, everything that Christianity is all about.
The true beauty of the whole Easter story is not only that it happened, but also how God had it happen.
He sent Jesus to the world as a living, breathing man, not as the powerful God he is.
