Sermon from diagramming John 3:16

Note: I once told my English teacher while I wasn't sure what life had planned for me, I can promise you there will NEVER be a scenario where "Diagramming a sentence" will become beneficial!

Later in life, to my surprise and to everyone who had ever known me, I was called into the Ministry. One of the tools of a Preacher turns out to be one diagrammed verse of Scripture that can produce 12 or more Sermons. Please see the example below:

Title: God's Great Love, taken from John 3:16


  • Ask the congregation if they've ever heard John 3:16 before.

  • Explain that it's one of the most well-known verses in the Bible, but it's also one of the most profound.

  • In this short verse, we can learn about the nature of God and the extent of His love.

Point 1: God's nature

  • Read the first half of John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son..."

  • Explain that this tells us something about who God is.

  • God is a giver. He's generous and selfless. He gave us the most precious thing He had – His Son.

  • Emphasize that this is an incredible display of God's character.

Point 2: God's love for the world

  • Read the second half of John 3:16: "...that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

  • Explain that this shows us the extent of God's love.

  • God's love isn't just for a select few – it's for the whole world. He wants everyone to experience eternal life.

  • Emphasize that this is a radical love – it's all-encompassing and doesn't discriminate.


  • Summarize the main points of the sermon.

  • State that John 3:16 is a powerful reminder of God's great love for us.

  • Encourage the congregation to reflect on this love and to respond in faith and gratitude.
