“That Less Famous Verse” ( John 3:17, WYC ) by Carley Evans

Father & Son / Vater & Sohn

Not for judgment — God the Father does not send Jesus His Son into the world for judgment purposes. In fact, that’s completely unnecessary for the world stands condemned already; judgment has been conferred; we are all doomed.

I am convinced if we start with this undeniable truth — that Jesus is a Savior and not a Judge, we might understand the level of His commitment to His Father’s purposes.

“For God sent not his Son into the world, that he judge the world, but that the world be saved by him.”

Jesus comes to earth to save, not to condemn. He comes to seek and save what is lost.

And what Jesus saves can not be lost.

    Amen Carley… Amen! We need do nothing to stand in judgement… we’re there! We need a Savior. For that reason Jesus came to His own. God bless, good friend.
