(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 everlasting life.If you have ever seen a Gideon Bible in a motel room or passed out at schools, they have this verse in the front of each volume in dozens of languages. They consider it that important.
We should also consider it important because it is the Gospel in a nutshell. God loves us. He sent Jesus. If you believe in Jesus you will avoid Hell and gain Heaven. Of course there is more to learn, that is what the Bible is all about, but if you know that much you can join God’s family.
