John 3:15-21 "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."
Don't you just love these scriptures? God so "agape" us. Unconditional love. Jesus said He didn't come to point out our sins but to save us from them, and to take our place. Can anyone really understand salvation fully? It is almost an endless truth. We still have a responsibility to hate the darkness in the world and be a light. A light for all to see, so they can experience the love of an incredible Savior. I love the Lord and what He has done for me and is continuing to show me in my own life.
