Bible: John 3:12-18

3:12 If I have told you people 1  about earthly things and you don’t believe, how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? 2  3:13 No one 3  has ascended 4  into heaven except the one who descended from heaven – the Son of Man. 5  3:14 Just as 6  Moses lifted up the serpent 7  in the wilderness, 8  so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 9  3:15 so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.” 10 

3:16 For this is the way 11  God loved the world: He gave his one and only 12  Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish 13  but have eternal life. 14  3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, 15  but that the world should be saved through him. 3:18 The one who believes in him is not condemned. 16  The one who does not believe has been condemned 17  already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only 18  Son of God.
