The Father’s Love for the World

“Jesus came into this world of unbelief, rebellion against God, and disobedience to God’s commandments in order to reach the world with his love. He was sent by the Father to live a life of full obedience to the Father’s word, and then to offer up his life as a sacrifice for the world, because of the Father’s great love for the world. Whoever believes in Jesus will be granted God’s forgiveness and acceptance and becomes a child of God, born by the Spirit into his family.”
- Jerram Barrs, Learning Evangelism from Jesus (Wheaton, Ill.; Crossway Books, 2009), 11.
