Bible Passage: John 3:15-19
Some people believe that God is a god of hate and condemnation. Does He have the right to condemn? Yes, but not today if you are alive. There will be a day when you die and if you are lost He will condemn you to Hell.
There was a certain woman that was caught in the very act of adultery yet, Jesus didn’t condemn her. She was guilty and had every right to be condemned. he could have judged her right there but He didn’t. Jesus didn’t come into the world to condemn the world but to give an out.
The enemy runs loose and tells one that Jesus doesn’t love them and it out to get them. This is a lie straight from Hell. Have you ever had the thought that it would be better without all of this sin? If there was never any sin then there wouldn’t be a need for Jesus. Jesus came and made a way of rescue. No matter what someone’s opinion is about a person or race or even a political party, Jesus didn’t come to save just particular people. He came for one and ALL.
Today, Jesus is trying to invite all out of the condemnation of sin. Jesus was not sent to condemn but to save. If Jesus had not come to save the entire world then we would have been condemned to death if we were not saved.
The simple rejection of salvation, believing in Jesus Christ, is accepting one’s condemnation at death. As hard as it is to swallow, the born-again believer is not part of this world. It’s got to the point that a saved person can’t even be entertained by normal TV programming. Sinful, disgusting programming on every channel.
It made James & John mad at how the people treated Jesus. They lashed out wanting to kill every person in this village. They thought they were doing good yet Jesus rebuked them and told them He didn’t come to destroy them but to save them. As Christian, we are not to hate someone but to love them, the complete opposite of condemning. We should be looking thru the eyes of Christ when we look upon a sinner, lost person. Love them because we were in their very same shoes at one time. Love your enemies, do not condemn.
