John 3:16-36

For in this way God loved the world, so that he gave his one and only Son, in order that everyone who believes in him will not perish, but will have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world in order that he should judge the world, but in order that the world should be saved through him. The one who believes in him is not judged, but the one who does not believe has already been judged, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.read more.
And this is the judgment: that the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone who practices evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds be exposed. But the one who practices the truth comes to the light, in order that his deeds may be revealed, that they are done in God. After these [things] Jesus and his disciples came into Judean territory, and there he spent time with them and was baptizing. Now John was also baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because water was plentiful there, and they were coming and were being baptized. (For John had not yet been thrown into prison.) So a dispute occurred on the part of John's disciples with a Jew concerning purification. And they came to John and said to him, "Rabbi, he who was with you on the other side of the Jordan, about whom you testified--look, this one is baptizing, and all are coming to him!" John answered and said, "A man can receive not one [thing] unless it is granted to him from heaven! You yourselves testify about me that I said, 'I am not the Christ, but I am sent before that one.' The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. But the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices {greatly} because of the bridegroom's voice. So this joy of mine is complete. It is necessary for that one to increase, but [for] me to decrease." The one who comes from above is over all. The one who is from the earth is from the earth and speaks from the earth; the one who comes from heaven is over all. What he has seen and heard, this he testifies, and no one accepts his testimony. The one who accepts his testimony has attested that God is true. For [the one] whom God sent speaks the words of God, for he does not give the Spirit by measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all [things] into his hand. The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who disobeys the Son will not see life--but the wrath of God remains on him.
