Jesus said to Nicodemus, “God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world but so the world might be saved through him.”
Jesus’ mission is not to condemn the world but to save it. He calls us who believe in him to do likewise. Like Nicodemus, we find this hard to understand. We are accustomed to the harsh realities of our world, such as terrorism, war, collateral damage, market forces, corporate downsizing, torture, and ethnic cleansing. We take the daily condemnation and crucifixion of millions of our fellow human being for granted.
What crucifixions can I or we in our church community help end?
