There is a judge for the one who rejects Me and does not accept My words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day. John 12:48
What better way to motivate men and women to read the Gospels! They are the standard by which we will all be judged. The very judge itself will be the words spoken by Jesus almost 2000 years ago. His words are ubiquitous and global. Specifically, no other verse from the Gospels has been quoted, read, internet searched, shouted, made graffiti, made bumper stickers and preached than John 3:16, “ 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.” (NIV) Over and over people have heard this short, beautiful verse and failed to understand, failed to respond and failed to realize they will be held accountable for spurning this offer by God.
