Jesus - The Salvation And Light Of The World

"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.

Whoever believes in Him is not
condemned, but whoever does not
believe stands condemned already
because he has not believed in the
name of God's one and only Son.

This is the verdict: Light has come
into the world, but men loved
darkness instead of light because
their deeds were evil.

Everyone who does evil hates the
light, and will not come into the
light for fear that his deeds will
be exposed.

But whoever lives by the truth
comes into the light, so that it
may be seen plainly that what he has
done has been done through God."

What a beautiful reminder of how much God loves us. John 3:16 is one of my favorite bible verse. I learned that verse as a very young child. May God bless you.

Indeed Kuya Mel, as a mom, I could never fathom the great sacrifice that God did in giving his only sone for us... Can you imagine doing that to your kids??? I mean I am only human, that's probably why I can't fathom it.. He is truly great and his love is eternal...

Hi Kathy,
Only by meditating on John 3:16 and the great love of God for man can we begin to realize the greatness of God's love for us when He gave His one and only Son to die in our place. The only thing we must do is accept that grace of salvation so that we can avail of eternal life with God. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

I also love Hillsong songs Kuya Mel. I have a dvd songs live of them. I so love it! I actually played it every Sunday though it's been many Sundays already haven't played but of course it is always here. It's so refreshing to hear such Christian songs! I so like!

I do believe Jesus, as the Son of God, is the door to heaven. As He said, no one goes to the Father except through me. Only if we build a truly loving, holy relationship with Him will we attain salvation. But I do wonder what will happen those who have not heard about Jesus. There are still people in some areas of the world that haven't yet heard about Jesus. What will happen to them? My feeling is that they will be judged by their moral conduct and holy they have been. What do you think Mel?

Hi JI,
You are right in saying that Jesus Christ is the door to heaven and salvation. As to those who have not heard of Him, they will be judged based on their own spiritual beliefs reinforced by their conscience. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
