“God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son.” This is a simple direct and complete picture of God. It is God’s gift to us here and now. This is Salvation. St. Paul reminds us It is a simple, direct, and complete picture of God. It is God’s gift to us here and now. St. Paul reminds us that Salvation is yours rather then will be yours. Salvation is not just a question of heaven or hell. It is a matter for here and now. All we need to do is look on him who has been raised up for all to see.
