My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

John 3


Jesus talked to a Jewish leader and explained that we must be spiritually born again. He explained that God has come out of love to save the world. God's light is here, but some choose to reject it cos it's too bright.

After some complaints of Jesus baptising, John explained that he was given that authority from God. John himself wasn't the Messiah. You have to accept Jesus to accept God.

Key verse:
16. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

My thoughts:
This is a key chapter for the basics of what it means to be a Christian. This verse 16 is probably the most famous one in the Bible, and I do believe that it really does sum up the point of God's Word.

John makes no apology for his clear statements that God can be found only through Jesus and that is why Jesus was sent. So that we may find God. That's what it all comes down to.
