“This is how much God loved humanity. He gave his Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. A relationship with God. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling people how bad they are. He came to help, to put people right again. Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted (forgiven); anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God (Jesus Christ) when introduced to Him.
John 3:16 altered version
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
