John 3:16 - ONE SOLITARY LIFE!!!
John 3:16 (KJV) For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
Nearly two thousand years ago in an
obscure village, a child was born of a peasant
woman. He grew up in another village where He
worked as a carpenter until He was thirty. Then for
three years He became an itinerant preacher.
This Man never went to college or
seminary. He never wrote a book. He never held a
public office. He never had a family nor owned a
home. He never put His foot inside a big city nor
traveled even 200 miles from His birthplace. And
though He never did any of the things that usually
accompany greatness, throngs of people followed Him.
He had no credentials but Himself.
While He was still young, the tide of
public opinion turned against Him. His followers
ran away. He was turned over to His enemies and
went through the mockery of a trial. He was
sentenced to death on a cross between two thieves.
While He was dying, His executioners gambled for
the only piece of property He had on earth "
the simple coat He had worn. His body was laid
in a borrowed grave provided by a compassionate
But three days later this Man arose from
the dead - living proof that He was, as He had
claimed, the Savior whom God had sent, the Incarnate
Son of God.
Nineteen centuries have come and gone and
today the risen Lord Jesus Christ is the central
figure of the human race. On our calendars His
birth divides history into two eras. One day of
every week is set aside in remembrance of Him. And
our two most important holidays celebrate His
birth and resurrection. On church steeples around
the world His cross has become the symbol of
victory over sin and death.
This one Man's life has furnished the
theme for more songs, books, poems and paintings
than any other person or event in history.
Thousands of colleges, hospitals, orphanages and other
institutions have been founded in honor of this One who
gave His life for us.
All the armies that ever marched, all the
navies that ever sailed, all the governments that
ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned have
not changed the course of history as much as
this One Solitary Life.
Over the centuries millions have found a
new life of forgiveness from sins and peace with
God through faith in Jesus Christ. Today He
offers this life to all who will believe. "I am the
way, the truth, and the life," Jesus said, "no
man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." "He that
heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me,
hath everlasting life, and shall not come into
condemnation; but is passed from death unto life" John
