Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/30/15

This week’s scripture is from John:

Jesus Christ“For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.”  (John 12:47b)

The Word of God tells us that Jesus did not come to condemn us but to save us, for it is the Law that brings condemnation for it shows us where we fall short of the righteousness of God. In this fallen world and in our fallen state we cannot but fall short, and we certainly cannot save ourselves for our righteousness is not righteous before the Almighty Holy God. Though all are guilty and deserving of judgment, Jesus did not come to judge; He came to save us from condemnation, to save us from all unrighteousness and sin. He sacrificed Himself that we might obtain His righteousness and be forgiven. Praise God for sending His son Jesus that we might know salvation and the mercy of His grace and love.

May the Lord bless you to know the depth of His love for you.
