My daughter, Lauren, often uses her creativity to draw pictures when she expresses her love for Jesus. One afternoon she decided to write out John 3:16, adding colorful doodles and designs to bring it to life. Once she finished, she brought her finished masterpiece to me and I looked at it with utter amazement.

The verse was John 3:16 alright, but she inadvertently ran two words together and gave new meaning to this ever familiar verse. Instead of writing, “For God so loved the world…”, she wrote, “For God solved the world…” Lauren was unaware of her linguistic error, but quickly admitted that God did solve the world by giving us his son.

Remember that God has already prepared for our failure and has atoned for our sin. All he requires is a whole-hearted commitment of trust and belief.
