Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
And so the Word became flesh and took a place among us for a time; and we saw his glory--such glory as is given to an only son by his father--saw it to be true and full of grace.
And he said, Let not your hand be stretched out against the boy to do anything to him; for now I am certain that the fear of God is in your heart, because you have not kept back your son, your only son, from me.
He still had one, a dearly loved son: he sent him last to them, saying, They will have respect for my son.
For if, when we were haters of God, the death of his Son made us at peace with him, much more, now that we are his friends, will we have salvation through his life;
He who did not keep back his only Son, but gave him up for us all, will he not with him freely give us all things?
So that whoever has faith may have in him eternal life.
But go and take to heart the sense of these words, My desire is for mercy, not offerings: for I have come not to get the upright, but sinners.
1 Timothy 1:15
It is a true saying, in which all may put their faith, that Christ Jesus came into the world to give salvation to sinners, of whom I am the chief:
See, I have put before you today, life and good, and death and evil;
I am crying out to you, O men; my voice comes to the sons of men.
For this reason, then, a man may get righteousness by faith without the works of the law.
1 John 4:19
We have the power of loving, because he first had love for us.
