3:16!

Today has been just one of those days where I haven’t felt very productive and have just been struggling in general with different thoughts and worries.  Fortunately, I heard on the radio this morning that today is 3:16 Day, because the verse John 3:16 corresponds with the date March 16th (3-16).  What is this you might ask?  It’s a day that we can use to our advantage as Christians.  It is the day that if for no other reason than the date itself, we can gather up our courage and share our faith with non-believers and encourage fellow believers through the simple truth of John 3:16:  “For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Our world is crazy right now as any news station is willing to point out.  The fighting, the wars, the shaky government, and now the tragic situation playing out in Japan, this all adds up to one thing.  Our world needs a Savior now more than ever before.  Think about your family and your friends.  If your situation is anything like mine then you have loved ones that are ill, hurting, grieving, struggling in life, love, work, and finances.  With everything seemingly falling apart, have you bothered to share the Truth with those you love so much that need something Permanent to get them through?  Today, I realize that I have not been as outgoing in this area recently as I should be, and today, I am hoping to take the first steps in changing that and hope you will too.  Dare to dream for just a moment about what the world would be like if Christians were more vocal about our love for the One that truly defined love, the One that came in the form of a baby to grow up and be the only One to ever lead a sinless life and then suffer the most brutal beating ever recorded in history, all to pay the price for my sins and your sins.  Wow!  Now that is love! 

I hope you are encouraged and fired up about sharing your faith now or that if you don’t know my Savior, Jesus Christ, that you now have a hunger to get to know Him better.  Find a way to share your faith today.  Post it on Facebook, send someone an encouraging text message, whatever it is but do something.  Have a blessed day sharing the Truth of John on 3:16 Day!
