Jesus Did Not Come to Condemn

by Jimmy Pruitt

As much as I love John 3:16, I have always been struck by verse 17…

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Jn 3:17 ESV

Jesus did not put on an earth suit and move into the neighborhood to condemn, accuse or hand down a sentence. He came to save the world. Our mission must be one and the same.
