16“For God loved the world so much that he gave his gone and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.17God sent his Son into the
world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
They may be the most famous words in the world. I know of none sweeter. There really isn’t much to add or explain.
A small note about the word “believe”. The Greek word that is translated by us as believe, means so much more in Greek. It really is a combination of all the following: trust, depend on, believe, follow, stand with, agree, have faith in.
The last verse is also very special. Jesus is clearly here to save us, not condemn us. Satan uses shame and condemnation. Jesus use love and forgiveness. So should we.
Take some time to just dwell on these verses. Read them over and over and let the Holy Spirit fill you with the joy they inspire. *obbs*
