John 3:16 Day and other March Holidays

By  | 

Monday was Pi Day, tomorrow is Saint Patrick’s Day and today is John 3 16 Day?

Peaking at 6am this morning, the #1 trending search was “John 3 16.”

Research showed that a listener on K-Love radio station, a listener supported contemporary Christian radio station, called in this morning and deemed today, March 16th to be “John 3 16 Day” referring to the Bible verse which reads, “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.”

Wager Run News explained it this way, “They have a holiday for everything else. It is time that they make a holiday for something that is life changing…Many people think that salvation just means not going to hell. They are unaware that salvation means ‘the act of delivering from sin or saving from evil’. That is in this life as well. When you keep this in mind and read through the rest of the Bible John 3 16 is even more powerful as you see all of the covenant promises we can tap into each and every day.”

According to holidayinsights.com March has been deemed everything from: “Irish American Month” to “National Frozen Food Month” and this website lists each day’s celebrations.  Who came up with these daily dedications, who knows?

    What a great idea! I like this John 3:16 day. It’s amazing that such a thing could be started with one caller to a radio station. Shows the power of one.
