John 3:16-18

Yeshua Paid the Price


John 3:16-18 for God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that who ever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life for God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world but that the world might be saved through Him he who believes in Him is not judged he who does not believe has been judged already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God this is a very famous verse obviously John 3:16 for God so loved the world as I read this what I began to understand is nobody is actually judged for their sin do you know what everybody is judged for it says people who are judged by God are judged for one reason they’ve rejected the Son of God that’s what verse 18 says it says he who does not believe has already been judged because he hasn’t believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God here’s what we need to understand nobody needs to be judged for their own sin why because Yeshua paid for every sin you’ve ever committed Yeshua paid for every mistake everything you’ve ever done wrong He paid for when He shed His blood and He was raised from the dead there’s a choice every one of us has do you want to reject the blood of Yeshua and remain in your sin or are you willing to accept the blood of Yeshua and let Him pay for your sin and what we find is that many many people don’t even understand or recognize that they’re in trouble we have a society today where people don’t even recognize sin they don’t even take moral responsibility for anything that they do wrong they just redefine sin as mistakes or incomplete knowledge or not understanding no there’s moral accountability before God and if you understand that then every one of us need to understand we deserve absolutely nothing from God we only deserve to perish eternally separated from Him in hell because of our own selfishness and our own sin and God had mercy on us because He loved us when He sent His Son Yeshua to die for us and that’s available for every one of us it would be like if you tried to explain to somebody you may not understand this but this morning on your way to work you drove at 50 miles and hour through a 15 mile an hour school zone for deaf children very dangerous, you could have hit one of these children and killed them I have good news for you that infraction warrants a 25,000 dollar fine because it was so dangerous but somebody has stepped up and paid your fine do you know if a man you explain that to doesn’t believe that he’s done anything wrong he says I didn’t drive through a school zone for deaf children what are you talking about he’ll be offended at the fact that you tried to explain to him that somebody paid his fine when he doesn’t even believe that he owes a fine and that’s what we find is the condition of many many people this is what John 3:18 is describing is that people are already judged because they reject the one who paid for them because they don’t even believe they’ve done anything wrong in the first place and so what’s critical to understand is that every one of us have fallen short of the glory of God every one of us are like that one who’s driven through the school zone for deaf children at a high speed and deserves to pay a 25,000 dollar fine once I understand that now the fact that somebody stepped up and paid the fine for me is really really good news and that’s what Yeshua is saying here in John 3:16-18 is this should be good news for anybody who understands I’m in trouble I’ve sinned I deserve to be separated from God because of my selfishness and my sin and the way I’ve behaved and the people that I’ve hurt and the lies that I’ve told and the things that I’ve done wrong yes I deserve to be separated eternally from God but the good news is Yeshua paid for that and made a covenant that I can be grafted in to and His righteousness is now ascribed to me and He paid for my Sin and that is just incredibly good news that we need to get to everybody we can but first they need to understand that they’ve done something wrong so that when we explain to them the good news that somebody paid for what they’ve done wrong they can accept it there really is only one judgment and that is rejecting the one who paid for your sin let’s just pray I just sense today to pray for people around us family members maybe you have family members that don’t know the LORD that don’t even understand yet that they’ve done anything wrong I just feel lead to pray for them so Father we pray for our brothers, sisters parents, children close family members that don’t know you yet Father I pray that You’d bring a conviction of their wrong doing to them so that when we explain the good news of what Yeshua has done it would truly be good news to them Father I pray for your Holy Spirit to be released that those that are close to us who don’t know you today this week would be a week of breakthrough for them in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
