DR. MEG WITH GUEST MAX LUCADO (Part 1)
John 3:16 is one of the most familiar passages in the Bible – a verse that many may be able to recite by memory – but have you taken the time to truly ponder its great significance? In this episode, best-selling author Max Lucado joins Dr. Meg to discuss the powerful and timeless truths found within this beloved scripture. A self-described “open book”, Max willingly shares from his own personal experiences, as he addresses John 3:16 truths such as:
· God’s “whoever” policy
· God’s “whenever” policy
· The invitation of John 3:16 easily seen throughout the world
· God is a God of love and justice
· The question many of us ask: Can God forgive someone like me?
· Hell: Not for those who struggle and stumble, but for those who rebel and succeed
In this thought-provoking and passionate discussion, Max describes the all-encompassing, all-inviting promise that God extends to every individual person on earth through John 3:16.
