For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.  John 3:16-19 (NLT)

Oh how I wish the meaning of these words would be seared into the hearts of mankind! That they were our last thought at night and the first thing on our minds when we awake! For we that believe are all children of the light and of the day; (1Thess. 5:5) therefore, we need not fear as we approach our dying bed; for we are assured of our resurrection morning!

It is not so for the children of the darkness who do not yet believe. We were all once children of the darkness and enemies of God. But God loved us so much so that He sacrificed His only son for us! Now God has left us in this world so that we can share the good news with the children of the darkness so they too, can know God and be blessed with faith in Messiah.

God did not spare even His own son, but delivered him up for us all! He has given us His word that the believing soul will never perish, but have eternal life! Why would I keep such a thing a secret from mankind?  God does not wish that anyone should perish; Even the unlovable children of the darkness.  I will believe and build on this with my last dying breath and at last I hear my Savior’s words: “Well done, good and faithful servant! Enter into the joy of thy Lord!”

I have told all your people about your justice. I have not been afraid to speak out, as you, O LORD, well know. I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart; I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power. I have told everyone in the great assembly of your unfailing love and faithfulness. – Psalms 40:9-10 –
