Just so you know…

What the ‘world’ wants: what’s best at the time, be it truth or a lie. A name today, to be chewed up and later, spit out.
What Jesus wants: …only you – the good, the bad, and the ugly. To love and to cherish, when better or worse, when sick or happy, rich or poor – and He calls you His, forever.
However, you have to change your name to ‘whosoever!’ John 3:16.
-Toni Rypkema
Why would I write this? Because when I was very sick from a chemo treatment that I thought was going to kill me, I felt the death in my bone marrow, but I saw no lights. Only a door, and it opened in the darkness and I saw His nail-pierced hands. Then the words: “Not all know me as their King.” entered my mind.

I would never change this moment for anything. God let me live! I am so thankful, so in loving My King, I’ve got to let you know!

66 books in the Bible all condensed into one verse: “For God so loved you that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16, with the word ‘you’ instead of the  word ‘world’. But it’s true. God loved the world, so He gave…to whosoever! Please let it be you, meaning plural, meaning …all!
