    John 3:16
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>In the city of Chicago, one cold,
    >> >>>>>>>dark night, a blizzard was
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>setting in. A little boy was selling
    >> >>>>>>>newspapers on the corner. The people
    >> >>>>>>>were in and out of the cold..
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>The little boy was so cold that he
    >> >>>>>>>wasn't trying to sell many
    >> >>>>>>>papers.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>He walked up to a policeman and
    >> >>>>>>>said, "Mister, you wouldn't
    >> >>>>>>>happen to know where a poor
    >> >>>>>>>boy could find a warm place
    >> >>>>>>>to sleep tonight would you?
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>You see, I sleep in a box up
    >> >>>>>>>around the corner there and
    >> >>>>>>>down the alley and it's awful
    >> >>>>>>>cold in there for tonight.
    >> >>>>>>>Sure would be nice to have a warm
    >> >>>>>>>place to stay."
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>The policeman looked down at the
    >> >>>>>>>little boy and said, "You go
    >> >>>>>>>down the street to that big
    >> >>>>>>>white house and you knock on
    >> >>>>>>>the door. When they come out
    >> >>>>>>>the door you just say John 3:16,
    >> >>>>>>>and they will let you in.
    >> >>>>>>>" So he did.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>He walked up the steps and knocked
    >> >>>>>>>on the door, and a lady answered.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>He looked up and said, "John 3:16."
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>The lady said, "Come on in son."
    >> >>>>>>>She took him in and she sat
    >> >>>>>>>him down in a split bottom rocker
    >> >>>>>>>in front of a great big old
    >> >>>>>>>fireplace, and she went off.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>The boy sat there for a while and
    >> >>>>>>>thought to himself: John 3:16...
    >> >>>>>>>I don't understand it, but it
    >> >>>>>>>sure makes a cold boy warm.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>>Later, she came back and asked
    >> >>>>>>>him, "Are you hungry?"
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>He said, "Well, just a little. I
    >> >>>>>>>haven't eaten in a couple of
    >> >>>>>>>days and I guess I could stand
    >> >>>>>>>a little bit of food."
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>The lady took him in the kitchen
    >> >>>>>>>and sat him down to a table
    >> >>>>>>>full of wonderful food. He ate
    >> >>>>>>>and ate until he couldn't eat
    >> >>>>>>>any more. Then he thought to
    >> >>>>>>>himself : John 3:16..... boy, I
    >> >>>>>>>sure don't understand it but
    >> >>>>>>>it sure makes a hungry boy full.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>She took him upstairs to a
    >> >>>>>>>bathroom to a huge bathtub filled
    >> >>>>>>>with warm water, and he sat there
    >> >>>>>>>and soaked for a while. As he
    >> >>>>>>>soaked, he thought to himself :
    >> >>>>>>>John 3:16..... I sure
    >> >>>>>>>don't understand it but it
    >> >>>>>>>sure does make a dirty boy clean.
    >> >>>>>>>You know, I've not had a real bath
    >> >>>>>>>in my whole life.. The only bath
    >> >>>>>>>I ever had was when I stood in front
    >> >>>>>>>of that big old fire hydrant as they
    >> >>>>>>>flushed it out.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>The lady came in and got him. She
    >> >>>>>>>took him to a room, tucked
    >> >>>>>>>him into a big old feather bed,
    >> >>>>>>>pulled the covers up around his
    >> >>>>>>>neck, kissed him goodnight and
    >> >>>>>>>turned out the lights. As he
    >> >>>>>>>lay in the darkness and looked
    >> >>>>>>>out the window, at the snow
    >> >>>>>>>coming down on that cold night,
    >> >>>>>>>he thought to himself :
    >> >>>>>>>John 3:16.... I don't understand
    >> >>>>>>>it but it sure makes a tired
    >> >>>>>>>boy rested.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>The next morning, the lady came
    >> >>>>>>>back up and took him down
    >> >>>>>>>again to that same table full
    >> >>>>>>>of food. After he ate, she took
    >> >>>>>>>him down again to that same
    >> >>>>>>>big old split bottom rocker in
    >> >>>>>>>front of the fireplace and
    >> >>>>>>>picked up a big old Bible.
    >> >>>>>>>She sat down in front of
    >> >>>>>>>him and looked into his young
    >> >>>>>>>face.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>"Do you understand John 3:16?"
    >> >>>>>>>she asked gently.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>He replied, "No ma'am, I don't.
    >> >>>>>>>The first time I ever heard it
    >> >>>>>>>was last night when the policeman
    >> >>>>>>>told me to use it."
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>She opened the Bible to John 3:16
    >> >>>>>>>and began to explain to him
    >> >>>>>>>about Jesus.
    >> >>>>>>>Right there, in front of that big
    >> >>>>>>>old fireplace, he gave his heart
    >> >>>>>>>and life to Jesus. He sat there
    >> >>>>>>>and thought: John 3:16. I don't
    >> >>>>>>>understand it, but it sure makes
    >> >>>>>>>a lost boy feel safe.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>You know, I have to confess I
    >> >>>>>>>don't understand it either, how
    >> >>>>>>>God was willing to send His Son
    >> >>>>>>>to die for me, and how Jesus
    >> >>>>>>>would agree to do such a thing.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>I don't understand the agony of
    >> >>>>>>>the Father and every angel in
    >> >>>>>>>Heaven as they watched Jesus
    >> >>>>>>>suffer and die. I don't understand
    >> >>>>>>>the intense love for ME that
    >> >>>>>>>kept Jesus on the cross till
    >> >>>>>>>the end. I don't understand it,
    >> >>>>>>>but it sure does make life worth living.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>John 3:16 - For God so loved the
    >> >>>>>>>world, that he gave his only
    >> >>>>>>>begotton Son, that whosever believeth in Him
    >> >>>>>>>should not perish, but have
    >> >>>>>>>everlasting life.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>If you aren't ashamed to
    >> >>>>>>>do this, please follow the
    >> >>>>>>>directions.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of
    >> >>>>>>>me, I will be ashamed of
    >> >>>>>>>you before my Father."
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>Pass this on only if you mean it.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>I do Love God. He is my source
    >> >>>>>>>of existence. He keeps me
    >> >>>>>>>functioning each and every day.
    >> >>>>>>>Phil 4:13
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>If you love God and are not ashamed of all
    >> >>>>>>>the marvelous thingshe has done for you, send this on.
    >> >>Take 60
    >> >>>>>>>seconds &give this a shot! Let's justsee if Satan stops
    >> >>this one.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>All you do is
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>1) Simply say a small prayer for
    >> >>>>>>>the person who sent you this,
    >> >>>>>>>(Father, God bless this person in
    >> >>>>>>>whatever it is that You know he
    >> >>>>>>>or she may be needing this day!)
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>2.) Then send it on to five other
    >> >>>>>>>people. Within hours, five
    >> >>>>>>>people have prayed for you,
    >> >>>>>>>and you caused a multitude of
    >> >>>>>>>people to pray to God for other
    >> >>>>>>>people.
    >> >>>>>>>
    >> >>>>>>>Then sit back and watch the power
    >> >>>>>>>of God work in your life for
    >> >>>>>>>doing the thing that you know
    >> >>>>>>>He loves.
