In Principio

I have been struck since Sunday's gospel by the enormity of the promise made to us:
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Obviously one sees this at major sporting events - someone in the crowd holding up a sign that says "John 3:16". I wonder if anyone ever picks up a bible on seeing this and reads this incredible promise?
