God So Loved The World.

John 3:1-36
We say, ‘I’ll turn over a new leaf’. Christ says, ‘You must be born again’ (3,7).
Our way of thinking begins with ‘I’. Christ’s way of salvation begins with ‘God’: ‘God so loved the world…’ (16).
Begin with ‘I’ and you have sin, guilt and condemnation (Romans 3:10-11). Begin with God and you have Good News for sinners: ‘God shows His love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us’ (Romans 5:8).
* Through faith in Christ, we are ‘born of the Spirit’ (6-8; 1:12).
* The Spirit of God is the Spirit of holiness, love and truth.
* Those who are ‘born of the Spirit’ are to live a life of holiness, love and truth (1 John 4:2-3, 6-7, 12-13; 5:2-3).
‘Come to the light’. ‘Do what is true’. ‘Obey the Son’. Let Christ increase. This is the work of the Spirit in us (20-21, 36, 29, 34).
