TEXT -- John 3:16: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

In our history lessons as children we learned of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. These were architectural feats that amaze us even today because of the limited resources and knowledge which the creators had to work with. These seven wonders were: the statue of Zeus at Olympia, the beautiful hanging gardens of Babylon, the temple of Artemis in Ephesus, the Mausoleum of Mausolus in Turkey, the great, glistening Colossus of Rhodes, the mighty pyramids of Giza, and the lighthouse at Alexandria.

Even though we have made great progress in architecture, technology, and design since those ancient times, students of history and archaeology are still astounded and amazed at what our ancestors built thousands of years ago.

Today, I want us to look at some words that have amazed and astounded people for two thousand years. These words are rooted in the eternal past and have meaning for the eternal future. These are the words of Jesus Christ found in John 3:16. Out of the 31,373 verses in the Bible, this one is perhaps the most quoted and the most memorized of them all. Imagine what it must have been like to be Nicodemus -- the very first person in recorded history to hear these words, uttered by none other than Jesus Christ himself: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
