3:16 Black Eyes


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!
