This is "the verse" right? It's everywhere. It's the guy on the corner with the big sign or the spraypainted message on the sidewalk or the bottom of your In-N-Out drink. But don't let its prevalence dim its power. Because God loved the world, He sent His only Son to die for us and give us eternal life. Jesus is the only Son of God. And while the Father knew the end of the story, knew He'd get His Son back, there was still loss associated with that decision. When Jesus hung on the cross, all the sins of the world were placed on His shoulders, and in that moment He was separated from God. In that moment, God turned away from Him. But through His sacrifice, we have life. Now, with Jesus taking on our punishment, we are made clean and righteous before the Father. We don't have to atone for our sins by being apart from Him. We are free to remain in His presence forevermore. And Jesus didn't just come for the Jewish people. He didn't just come for the protestant church. He didn't come only for the westernized, educated, wealthy or "religious." Jesus came for the world. The whole world. ANYBODY who believes in Him will have eternal life. Regardless of sex, age, country, ethnicity, religious upbringing, socio-economic status, level of education, relationship status, disability, level of health, etc. No category is taken into account for who qualifies to be saved. There is only one requirement: accept Jesus as the Son of God and your personal savior. If you believe in His death and resurrection, acknowledging that you couldn't save yourself but that His sacrifice gifts you eternal life and you claim Him as your Lord, you are saved. Jesus came for you. He came to save you. If nobody else claimed Him, He would've still died just for you. He loves you that much.
