Daily Word Of God

John 3:13-17

Jesus said to Nicodemus: ‘No one has gone up to heaven except the one who came down from heaven, the Son of Man who is in heaven; and the Son of Man must be lifted up as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so that eceryone who believes may have eternal life in him.

‘For God sent his Son into the world not to condemn the world, but so that through him the world might be saved.’
