“There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants. ” (John 3:18-21 NLT)
These verses follow behind the famous John 3:16, “For God so loved the world He sent his only begotten Son…”
The verses above are an important teaching from Jesus as a follow-up to that verse. Yes, God sent His Son for all, but the point is we need to believe. For if we don’t believe, we are seen as being against Jesus, against what God is trying to do in the world.
If we’re against God? We will be judged.
Follow Jesus? No judgement.
Do you believe?
