VERSE OF THE DAY
John 3:17 (New Living Translation)
God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
We are all sinners believers and nonbelievers it is in us in our human nature of how we were created in masterpiece to God and by the seal that was broken by Adam and Eve
So this scripture is telling us exactly what needed to be done for the rescue of mankind as all God sacrificed his only Son by sending him a man like us into the world in flesh not to judge the world all mankind, but to bring salvation upon the wrath and wrongs against God’s law that we as mankind make thus to save the world as God’s whole creation as a whole through him Jesus God’s son thus giving us the chance of life to not be brought to a catastrophic death by the cards played out by Satan but in Jesus giving the gift of salvation and granting us forever eternal life in him that though our body may die we will live forever at the hand of God in heaven should we accept the death and resurrection of Jesus and his gift of salvation to all believers and nonbelievers alike

What Does John 3:17 Mean? ►
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
So many believers are living under condemnation. So many see God as an angry God with a big stick, watching our every movement with a frown on His face – waiting in anticipation for us to do something wrong, so that He can punish us.
If only believers would take what the word of God says literally and BELIEVE what it says – so many would not be living their lives under condemnation but would be rejoicing in the Lord…for God did NOT send His Son into the world in order to condemn the world, but to SAVE the world – through Christ.
It was out of love and not cruelty that God sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for the sin of the world – and once a sinner believes this simple truth he is immediately saved and is NOT condemned. But how many believers continue to live the life under condemnation – simply because they do not read God’s word or believe what they read.
Let us read, mark, learn and inwardly digest God’s Word – and then believe what He says.
Thank You Lord for the Bible and for the truth that it contains. Guide me into all truth I pray- knowing that all I need for salvation and sanctification is contained within the pages of Scripture, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
What does John 3:17 mean?
Verse 17 is a peaceful footnote to John 3:16. Jesus came for the purpose of saving people, not condemning them. Verse 18 explains that this is because those who do not believe are “condemned already.” According to the Bible, God doesn’t want to see anyone destroyed (Ezekiel 18:23–32). Rather, He would prefer that everyone be saved (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:4). However, He will give us the dignity of our choices.
This salvation is offered to “the world,” a phrase this verse uses three times. This is from the Greek word kosmos, which sometimes refers to the God-hating system of human society. In this context, however, it means “all people.” The meanings overlap in this case, since the people Christ died for were—and are—sinners who are separated from Him (Romans 5:12).
This verse also reiterates the idea that salvation is through Christ—and nothing else. The offer of salvation is for everyone, but only those who accept it will actually be saved.
John 3:16–21 begins with the most easily recognized portion of any holy book on Earth: John 3:16. This is a one-sentence summary of the entire gospel. Still, the verses which follow are just as critical for understanding the Christian message. Christ wasn’t sent to judge the world, but to bring salvation. This is an expression of God’s incredible love. However, those who do not believe in Jesus Christ are condemned in the eyes of God. Human preference for sin causes many to choose darkness over the Light.
John chapter 3 is one of the most important in the entire gospel. Many crucial ideas are explained in this passage, including the role of Jesus as Savior. After the loud, public commotion at the temple, John transitions to a quiet, nighttime discussion. These verses make it clear that Christ—and Christ alone—is the means of salvation for the entire world. This text also states that those who reject Jesus are rejecting God
