Series: Word Made Flesh
Author: Mickey Badalamenti

John 3:16 might pop up on mugs and at sporting events, but have we really taken the time to absorb what it means?

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
