FAITH, HOPE, LOVE

 

1 John chapter 3 –Good News Translation (GNT)

(a letter of John)

16 This is how we know what love is: Christ gave his life for us.

We too, then, ought to give our lives for others! 

17 If we are rich and see others in need, yet close our hearts against them, how can we claim that we love God? 

18 My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.

John chapter 3 Good News Translation (GNT)

(the gospel of John)

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

For God did not send his Son into the world to be its judge, but to be its savior.
