This is how much God loved the world:
He gave his Son, his one and only Son.

And this is why:

so that no one need be destroyed;

by believing in him,
anyone can have a whole and lasting life.

God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son

merely to point an accusing finger,
telling the world how bad it was.

He came to help,

to put the world right again.

Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted;

anyone who refuses to trust him has
long since been under the death sentence
without knowing it.

And why?

Because of that person’s failure to believe
in the one-of-a-kind Son of God
when introduced to him.

John 3:16-18 (The Message)

He is Risen… He is Risen indeed! Happy Resurrection Day, friends!
