There’s just no contest! John 3:16 is the most recognized and probably the most memorized Bible verse in the entire world! We’ve seen the sign held by the crazy-haired guy at the Super Bowl, but there is more to it. John 3:16 captures God’s heart for people of all types who have turned their back on Him. For Christians, it is part of our story. My story!
My story of being a good little Baptist boy who was out riding bikes one day when God used a friend to show me that though I knew more about Jesus than my friend did, my buddy knew Jesus in a way that I did not – he knew Christ personally.
Every year the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma encourages people to give money to the Edna McMillan State Mission Offering, through their local church. This offering helps fund ministries such as My316, which is encouraging people all over Oklahoma to share the simple Gospel story with their friends and neighbors.
Contact your local church about giving to the State Mission Offering. This offering helps our state provide extra resources that are bringing people to Christ. For more info, go to www.bgco.org/smo.
