three : sixteen

I’ve been awol! :/ These last several weeks/months have been extremely busy. Because of that, I’ve completely neglected my blog. This will likely be the norm for the next few months, unfortunately. But, today I have something worth blogging about! :)

Many of us know the famous 3:16 passage in the Bible…For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. – John 3:16

However, I never knew there were so many other powerful passages that came from chapter threes and verse sixteens in the Bible. Today’s church service was titled “three:sixteen.” Below are the three scriptures discussed during today’s sermon regarding the Holy Spirit:

  • John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” – Luke 3:16 NIV
  • As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. – Matthew 3:16 NIV
  • Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? – 1 Corinthians 3:16 NKJV 

I encourage you to read your Bible. Read the passages surrounding the scriptures above to better obtain the context in which they were written. The Bible is full of truth. You may find yourself surprised at how applicable the information in the Bible is to your daily life. Give it a try! :)

I should be back here in a month (hopefully sooner!). In the meantime, share some scriptures you find powerful…
