No one has ever gazed upon
The fullness of God's splendor,
Except the uniquely beloved Son,
Who is cherished by the Father,
And held close to His heart.
Now He leads the way to the place
Of honor at the Father's side!
17 "God did not send His Son into the world to judge and condemn the world, but to be its Savior and rescue it! 18 So now there is no longer any condemnation for those who believe in Him, but the unbeliever already lives under condemnation because they do not believe in the name of God's Beloved Son. 19 And here is the basis for their judgment: The Light of God has now come into the world, but the hearts of people love their darkness more than the Light, because they want the darkness to conceal their evil. 20 So the wicked hate the Light and try to hide from it, for their lives are fully exposed in the Light. 21 But those who love the Truth will come out into the Light and welcome its exposure, for the Light will reveal that their fruitful works were produced by God."
39 You are busy analyzing the Scriptures, frantically pouring over them in hopes of gaining eternal life. 40 Yet everything you read points to Me and you still refuse to come to Me so that I can give you the life you're looking for- eternal life!
