Let’s Strive for Love, Understanding, & Salvation” (John 3:16-17)

Good morning, everyone! Remember John 3:16-17(NKJV) in the spirit of unity: "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. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." Let's strive for love, understanding, and salvation, embracing our shared hope in Christ. Have a purposeful and united day!


In John 3:16-17 (NKJV), the Greek word for "believes" in verse 16 is "pisteuō," which implies active faith and trust. It goes beyond mere intellectual assent, suggesting a deep, personal commitment.


A parallel example of the Greek word "pisteuō" (believes) from John 3:16 can be found in Romans 4:3(NKJV), where it says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." The same word emphasizes Abraham's trust and faith in God, showcasing that genuine belief leads to righteousness. Just as Abraham's faith was credited as righteousness, John 3:16 conveys that our belief in Christ results in the gift of eternal life.


In verse 17, the Greek word for "might" is "hina," indicating purpose or result. In this context, it emphasizes that through belief in Christ, people might not perish but have eternal life, highlighting the purpose of salvation.


An example or parallel of the Greek word "hina" (might) found in John 3:17 (NKJV)can be seen in 1 John 3:1(NKJV): "Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore, the world does not know us because it did not know Him." Here, "hina" conveys the purpose or result of God's love – that we might be called children of God. Similarly, in John 3:17(NKJV), "hina" emphasizes the purpose of Christ's coming, not to condemn but to save, highlighting the potential result of salvation for those who believe.



In Christ, love ❤️ Jared W. Campbell
