3:16 Black Eyes

Word of God

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

When he was playing for the Florida Gators, Tim Tebow decided to write Bible verses on his eye blacks, and one Saturday he chose John 3:16. It was a televised game, and Tebow later learned 94 million people googled “John 3:16” during the game. How do 94 million people not know John 3:16?

  • According to John 3:16, God’s love is extensive. For God so loved the [whole] world… His love extends to every tribe and nation, to every believer and non-believer.
  • His love is expensive. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…The Lord loved us enough to sacrifice His own Son for us.
  • His love is expansive. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him…“Whoever” is a wonderfully inclusive word that reaches all who respond.
  • God’s love is eternal: … that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Because of Christ we have an endless life of blessing. What a message to share with the millions who need John 3:16!

What a big God that we serve. I’m out playing a silly game, and I put these things under my eyes and it’s amazing what God can do.
Tim Tebow

  1. You have to admire Tim Tebow. What a witness he has been under the limelight. I pray his witness will continue as he finds his place n the world of sports. Nice piece – the 4 E’s of John 3:16 – I like it!
