Why Did Jesus Come?

Football Fan Holding John 3:16I was reading John 3 again this week, and I came across one of the most familiar verses in the Bible, John 3:16. As I read it again I reminded about our conversation on Sunday regarding guilt vs. conviction. This shows why Jesus was sent into the world. Jesus came to save not condemn. His desire for us is healing not harm - life not death. When the words enter our mind of guilt and shame, we can know that beyond a shadow of a doubt they are from the enemy. Cry out to God and take back the hope that you have in Christ!

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." -
John 3:16-17
