Life or Death

in Salvation

Here's today's Bible Minute with good news from one of the most famous verses in God's Word.

Yes, you may already know John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."

But don't forget verses 17 and 18: "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

These verses remind us that yes, sin condemns us, but God graciously provided His only Son as a sacrifice for that sin. And when we apply the love of God to our lives--through faith in Jesus Christ--we are no longer condemned, but saved and brought into God's very own family.
