John 3:16 KJV 1900
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
SALVATION A FREE GIFT
Ephesians 2:7–9 KJV 1900
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

1952 “Only Forgotten Son”

Dr. Walter L. Wilson tells the story of a woman who had attended one of his meetings and waited after the service for spiritual help. When he asked her if she could quote any part of the Scripture, she said that she had once learned John 3:16 in Sunday School. He then asked her to quote it. She recited: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only forgotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Noticing that she had said “forgotten” for “begotten,” he said, “Do you know why God forgot his Son?” She said, “No, I don’t.” And Dr. Wilson said: “It was because he wanted to remember you.”

Then Dr. Wilson led her to a knowledge of Christ as Saviour.
