John 3:18 is today’s Bible verse where Jesus speaks about our freedom from condemnation through belief in his saving work on the cross. In John 3:18, Jesus says, “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” This verse is a powerful reminder of the importance of faith. As believers, we are not condemned because we have put our faith in Jesus. But those who do not believe are already condemned, because they have failed to believe in the one who can save them from their sins. This verse should encourage us to share the gospel with those who do not yet know Christ, so that they can receive forgiveness and eternal life. It is also a reminder of the need for us to keep our own faith strong, so that we can continue to stand firm in the face of condemnation.

15 June Scripture Reading and Reflection for Today
It is a powerful thing when we realize that we are not alone in this world. That our Heavenly Father has provided a way for us to have eternal life with Him. One way He has done this is by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to save it. Not to condemn it, but to show us the way to eternal life. This is such a beautiful act of love on God’s part. And it is an act that we can all take part in by reflecting on His Word and allowing it to change our lives. As we do this, we become more like Christ and are able to share His love with others. What a wonderful thing it is to know that we can be part of God’s plan for salvation!
