I like to keep going where most people stop at verse 16. Here’s John 3:17:
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Merry Christmas, everyone! Here’s hoping that we Christians never forget why we celebrate this day in the first place. And as we get ready to close 2009 and get ready for 2010(!), here’s hoping that we remember that condemnation is not and has never been in our job description, since it wasn’t even in Jesus’.
