"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." -John 3:17
Almost everyone in our country and around the world knows the famous words of John 3:16, but the context of the verses that surround it is amazing. Each of us have broken the law and we can't even live up to our own standards, let alone God's (how are you doing on last year's New Year's resolutions? =)). God didn't send Jesus to condemn, but to save. That is why Christmas is so important.
Merry Christmas to you, from our family.
