““For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:15–17)
“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. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 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.”” (John 3:19–21)
What we do flows out of who we are. In this life, we are inconsistent -sinner AND saint. There is still a war going on within us, a war for our everlasting souls. But thanks be to God, Christ has won the war, and He will see us all through to the end.
