John 3:19

John 3:19

“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
John 3:19

John 3:16 tells us everyone has a chance to go to Heaven. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. What does it take to have eternal life? Believing in God’s Son, Jesus. That’s how people get saved.

The above verse tells us why people don’t get saved, because of their own love for darkness. In John 3:16, the word for love in “God so loved the world” is the Greek word agape. In John 3:19, the Greek word for love in “men loved darkness” is a form of the same word. The people who reject Jesus do so, not because of any kind of intellectual argument, but because they love the life they’re living and don’t want to give it up to worship God.

Our prayer for them is their eyes should be open to God’s love and they would turn from darkness to the Light, Jesus Christ.
