I walked into the kitchen one afternoon and saw a big white cake that had just been frosted. I love white cake. It’s my favorite. And my wife Betty can really make a mean one.
So I found Betty and asked her, “Who is that white cake for?”
She looked at me and shrugged, “Whoever.”
Now she didn’t mean her cake was for just anybody. I knew she meant it was for me. And I enjoyed it.
The apostle John didn’t mean “whoever” in the same way that Betty meant it. He really meant “whoever.” Anybody. Everybody. Whoever.
John 3:16 says, “Whoever believes in Jesus will have eternal life.”
