“God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it .” — John 3:17 NLT
Everyone is familiar with this verse and John 3: 16 and what it means to us when we see it and hear it. I think we all learn this verse as a child and it is easy to recall it and keep in our minds and hearts.
We know without a doubt that God loves us so much that he sent his son to save us. Jesus came to save us and give us a chance to get back in God's favor. God loved us so much that he sent Jesus Christ to a dying world to save us. All of us are sinners, and we need to recognize him as our lord and savior.
We can't have a relationship with God because of our sins. But when Jesus came, he paid a price so that we wouldn't have to; because he loves us that much. He was nailed to the cross by his feet and his hands and was cut on his side. He did all this for us so that one day we can claim him as our lord and savior.
Some people still don't believe or understand that by giving their life to Jesus Christ, they would have everlasting life with Jesus Christ. They seem to not worry about what would happen when forever gets here. We need tell others about our friend and savior. Witnessing to the many nonbelievers is easy to do. We have to be able to tell what Jesus Christ has done for us and what more he will and can do for us each day.
Each day he loves us more, and we need to love him more. One of the promises he made to us is that he will arrange a place for us to go and be with him and the father. We have people who just do not believe, and they won’t listen to anyone. So many think they don't need to worry.
It is our job to go out into the world and tell people about Jesus. We need to reach out to a cold world and witness and pray for the nonbelievers and tell them what has been done and that there is still work to be done.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, please be with us as we go day by day. Thank you for loving us and providing for us. Help us to tell others about you and your love for us. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
