We believe many things even though we cannot see them. We believe there are nice things inside wrapped presents, even though we cannot tell for sure until we open the box. We believe we have a heart, and it is the right size although we have never actually seen our own heart. We believe there are rocks on the moon, even though we have never been to the moon.
Although we cannot see God, we believe He is real and that He loves us. In fact, He loves us so much He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) Believing is the first step to real salvation. Do you believe?

- Printout of John 3:16 (Get a PDF of my format here! (Right click and “Save As…”)

3. Glue the hearts with the letters into the appropriate blank spots on the John 3:16 verse. “Valentine” should be spelled out down the page.
4. Glue the verse paper onto the cardstock backing.
5. Optional: The Scripture verse number is printed on the bottom of your John 3:16 printout. If you want, you can cut off this piece and add the letters “JOHN 3:16” to the bottom of the backing, as I did!
