Not to Condemn but to Forgive

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

Jesus summarizes his entire mission with this one sentence spoken to Nicodemus. Nicodemus was confused by what Jesus had been saying. He didn’t understand what Jesus was all about. So Jesus gave him this simple summary of what he was all about. In many ways, this is the most famous single sentence in the gospels.
