Life exploration time:  Read out-loud John 3:16-21


~ Why do you suppose Jn 3:16 is so popular?


~ Describe how Jn 3:16 summarizes the Gospel…


~ Why might someone have a struggle with the idea of God loving everyone in the world?


~ According to Jn 3:17, God didn’t send Jesus to condemn/judge the world, but to save the world.  How do we reconcile this, with the fact that God still keeps us accountable for our choices?


~ 3:18 touches on what type of faith or belief?


~ In Jn 3:19-20, subversive, secretive, behind-the-scenes behaviors are chastised.  Whose job is it to expose these “dark” behaviors for what they are?


~ Read Jn 3:21.  Why is it so liberating when we are vulnerable and “come clean”?
