He gave us a gift, not just any gift —
He gave His one and only Son, Jesus, to
bleed and die on a cross.

“Whoever” is anyone — you, me, the boy who bags your
groceries, the woman who styles your hair,

 And through the added gift of eternal life,
salvation is ours — His promise to us
through His Son.

John 3:16 (NIV)

Let us give thanks again and again for this extraordinary gift of sacrifice and love.
