A1V Devotional: John 3:17

(Repost from 7/9/2012)

"For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."  ~ John 3:17

Probably one of the most overlooked verses in the Bible, mostly due to the extreme importance of the prior verse. We all know someone who uses the excuse "the ground would just open up and swallow me if I stepped into a church." How sad is that? So many people are think that faith is something that is going to strap them down with chains and imprison them for the things we've done wrong. They fail to realize that the opposite is true: faith liberates us from all those things. You don't miss them, they aren't a part of you any more. Sure, we may slip from time to time and fall into old habits, but Christ's forgiveness is never more than a prayer away for us.

"I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."  ~ John 10:9-10
