“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.” [John 3vs17]
We often put focus on the parts of the Christian story that separate “us” from “the world.” We categorize what Christians do from what the world does. Now there are ways, that those who have surrendered their lives to Christ should “live out” their faith, that should be distinct from world, but the fact remains, quoted in John 3:16, that God “loves the world” and that’s why He sent His Son.
How often do Christians present the Story of Christ in a way that seems to reflect that God actually “hates” the world and the people in it? What might change in your approach to sharing the gospel in order to reflect God’s love for the world instead?
Do you know someone who’s hurting, lost or lonely? Do you know someone making choices that hurt others and themselves? What would it be like to tell them about a God who loves them so much that gave His only Son so that they could have freedom?
