“God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.” John 3:17

 

In John’s writing we read of many kinds of life. In this verse it is eternal life. John shows that Jesus came to provide salvation for all who would believe in Him and be born again. All who do not believe are condemned already because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. Let us examine two verses that support John 3:17.

 

Matthew 1:21 “And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

Romans 8:1 “There is no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the spirit.”

 

In you, Christ Jesus, there is no defeat. Because of our faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
