For God So Loved the World

English Standard Version John 3:16-21

    16 “For God so loved the world, 
that he gave his only Son, that whoever 
believes in him should not perish but have 
eternal life. 
    17 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. 
    18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, 
but whoever does not believe is condemned already, 
because he has not believed in the name of the 
only Son of God. 
    19 And this is the judgment: the light has 
come into the world, and people loved the darkness 
rather than the light because their works were evil. 
    20 For everyone who does wicked things hates 
the light and does not come to the light, 
lest his works should be exposed. 
    21 But whoever does what is true comes to 
the light, so that it may be clearly seen that 
his works have been carried out in God.”
