There was a point when I realized that every rebellious path my "you can't tell me what to do" heart led me down had left me sad and broken. That moment is when I first understood this verse.
John 3:16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten ([a]unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
