For God So Loved the World
English Standard Version John 3:16-21
16 “For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only Son, that whoever
believes in him should not perish but have
17 For God did not send his Son into the
world to condemn the world, but in order
that the world might be saved through him.
18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned,
but whoever does not believe is condemned already,
because he has not believed in the name of the
only Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment: the light has
come into the world, and people loved the darkness
rather than the light because their works were evil.
20 For everyone who does wicked things hates
the light and does not come to the light,
lest his works should be exposed.
21 But whoever does what is true comes to
the light, so that it may be clearly seen that
his works have been carried out in God.”
