No Condemning

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17 NIV

Some people think God is just waiting for them to mess up so He can squish them like a bug. Jesus has made it plain that God loves us and sent His son to redeem us so that we might have eternal life with Him. Jesus was not sent to condemn the world – He came to save it. For example, the woman who was caught in adultery, Jesus forgave her. Jesus is in the business of calling us out of sin.

When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” John 8:10-11 NKJV
