Hi
Moving on

        Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
John 3:18 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.18.ESV     


It is imperative that we believe so that we will not be condemned and we will be saved in him to eternal life.
But if we do not believe we will be condemned  to the second death so let us make absolutely certain that we believe on our Lord Jesus Christ no doubting.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

    And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.
John 3:19 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.19.ESV         


The light spoken of here of course is our Lord Jesus Christ he came to shed light through the gospel but the world preferred darkness where they could do there evil acts believing no one would see but God sees everything.
There is none so blind as those who will not see but we who believe are not in darkness but in the light so let us walk in the light and remain in the light.

Love and Peace

   For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
John 3:20 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.20.ESV       


The light spoken of here is the Lord Jesus Christ he came into the world as the light of the world his light would shine on the evil deeds of man and expose them.
And having exposed their deeds give us the opportunity to repent and receive forgiveness through his blood which he would shed on the cross.
So let us not refuse this wonderful gift.

Love and Peace

Hi

    But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.?
John 3:21 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.21.ESV               


Doing what is true is following the teachings of Christ two of the most important is to love God and to love our neighbours and love our enemies by loveing we keep the laws of God God is love.
So let us come to that glorious light the light of the world Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.
So let it be seen that we do the works of God in God.

Love and Peace

Hi

     After this Jesus and his disciples went into the Judean countryside, and he remained there with them and was baptizing. John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because water was plentiful there, and people were coming and being baptized (for John had not yet been put in prison).
John 3:22-‬24 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.22-24.ESV       


Here we see the importance of baptism both our Lord and John the Baptist were baptizing and lots of people were being baptized which symbolises the washing of the body from sin ready to receive the gospel and be reborn into the body of Christ after his resurrection.
I believe the baptism we receive after the resurrection is a spiritual baptism we are washed with the water of the word of God and we come out of that washing to be reborn into the body of Christ.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     Now a discussion arose between some of John?s disciples and a Jew over purification. And they came to John and said to him, ?Rabbi, he who was with you across the Jordan, to whom you bore witness?look, he is baptizing, and all are going to him.? John answered, ?A person cannot receive even one thing unless it is given him from heaven. You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ?I am not the Christ, but I have been sent before him.? The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom?s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now complete. He must increase, but I must decrease.?
John 3:25-‬30 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.25-30.ESV           


Here we have John the Baptist witnessing that Jesus was greater than him and must increase and he would  decrease John was sent to pave the way for Christ.
The bride spoken of here is of course the church his wife to be when united will become the last Adam man and woman together as one.
John is exceedingly happy to hear the voice of our Lord as we should be when we read all the wonderful words he has given us.

Love and Peace

Hi

     He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all. He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony.
John 3:31-‬32 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.31-32.ESV       


Here John gives witness that Christ is from heaven he has come down from the Father and is above all of himself John says he is of the earth and speaks in an earthly way.
But of Christ he testifies that he speaks of heavenly things it is through him and for him all things are created and has seen all things from the beginning of creation and he knows the end from the beginning so we need to take extra special notice of what he has to say not like the scribes and Pharisees of his day who refused to believe him.
So every word our Lord spoke here on earth has special meaning so let us think on these things.

Love and Peace
Dave

       Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.
John 3:33-‬36 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.33-36.ESV     


Here we are given proof of who Jesus is  he is the son of God sent by God and he has been sent into the world to give us the words of God and he has been doing this from the beginning of creation.
The Father has given the whole creation over to Christ to finish the creation the last thing to be created is man in the image of God which is Jesus Christ at his second coming when he will be joined to his bride this is man in the image of God the Father.
Take extra special note of the words      Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life           

So let us take not of everything our Lord has to say and above all else believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Love and Peace
Dave
