The Gospel Project: Unit 20, Session 3
John Points to Jesus. John 1 and 3
Point 2: Jesus is the Son Who gives eternal life to those who believe. (John 3:31-36)
I don't add much extra-Biblical content to my site. But this quote says a lot, and this isn't from a religious perspective.
I think it is very relevant as we look at the words of John. Words John records coming from The Word, Jesus Christ.
So we are to consider:
And does a Loving God condemn us and send us to Eternal Death/Eternal Judgement/hell?
John 3:16-18, states that Christ didn't come to condemn, (that was done through the act of one man Adam). Christ came to SAVE the world.
Just as Moses held up the rod with the bronze serpent to heal those who looked upon it, Numbers 21:4-9; Christ was raised up on the cross to heal, give Eternal Life to all who believe in Him, John 3:14, 15.
Believing on Christ aligns one with God our Father. And LIFE begins now, in the here and now, not after death of our flesh. This is available to "whosoever will"!
"Why must we communicate that hearing the Gospel comes with the need for a response?"
A choice must be made, and to not choose is a choice. And we each can only choose for ourselves. Will you accept Christ's free gift?
John 3: 36, NIV " The one who believes in the Son has Eternal Life, but the one who rejects tha Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him."
