3:16

This month is March 2016 – or;  3/16.  It is 3/16 all month and it won’t happen again for another 100 years.

It’s a good month to reflect on God’s love – as in:

John 3:16 (NIV)

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

or:

1 John 3:16 (NIV)

16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

Or you can choose to look at your hardships:

Job 3:16 (NIV)

16 Or why was I not hidden away in the ground like a stillborn child,
    like an infant who never saw the light of day?

and:

Lamentations 3:16 (NIV)

16 He has broken my teeth with gravel;
    he has trampled me in the dust.

Or:

Romans 3:16 (NIV)

16     ruin and misery mark their ways,

Or you can sit and wait before the Lord and His guidance:

Ezekiel 3:16 (NIV)

16 At the end of seven days the word of the Lord came to me:

You can focus on who you are as a believer:

1 Corinthians 3:16 (NIV)

16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?

Or rest in His peace:

2 Thessalonians 3:16 (NIV)

16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

But no matter what, do not be lukewarm about your faith on 3/16 or any other month because there is fair warning:

Revelation 3:16 (NIV)

16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
