In this life, to get where you want to go, you typically have to be somebody; very little is offered to just whoever. Perhaps this is why the policy in John 3:16 seems too good to be true: “Whoever believes in him shall not perish.” Whoever? Really? We all know when something seems too good to be true, it is too good to be true. But not so with the offer Christ makes—the offer of who gets to receive his eternal life.
