What Does John 3:17 Mean?

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

John 3:17(ESV)

Verse Thoughts

So many believers are living under condemnation. So many see God as an angry God with a big stick, watching our every movement with a frown on His face - waiting in anticipation for us to do something wrong, so that He can punish us.

If only believers would take what the word of God says literally and BELIEVE what it says - so many would not be living their lives under condemnation but would be rejoicing in the Lord...for God did NOT send His Son into the world in order to condemn the world, but to SAVE the world - through Christ.

It was out of love and not cruelty that God sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for the sin of the world - and once a sinner believes this simple truth he is immediately saved and is NOT condemned. But how many believers continue to live the life under condemnation - simply because they do not read God's word or believe what they read.

Let us read, mark, learn and inwardly digest God's Word - and then believe what He says.

My Prayer

Thank You Lord for the Bible and for the truth that it contains. Guide me into all truth I pray- knowing that all I need for salvation and sanctification is contained within the pages of Scripture, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
