John 3:16 Commercial

January 17, 2012

What a cute commercial!

John 3:16

I heard about all the fuss over the commercial that was aired by Focus on the Family during Saturday night’s playoff game.  When I watched it, I thought it was wonderful.

Not everybody thinks so.

There has been a lot of negative comments floating around about how offensive the commercial was to some people.  Some people are really upset, even outraged.


There is a simple explanation.  II Corinthians 2:15&16 says ” For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.  To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life.”

So, for those who believe, this commercial is a sweet reminder of our salvation.  To those who have rejected the message, it pricks their spirit, and they are indeed, offended.
