That whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

John 3:15-17

The Lord Jesus in His answer to Nicodemus‘ question, gave insight into the awful price of sin and how only the love of God could pay such an awful price to redeem mankind from sin and its consequences. The love of God for sinners reveals to what extent God was willing to go to save mankind. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ for sin also reveals God’s hatred for sin and His love for sinners. Our response to His love must be first total trust in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ for us and total repentance from sin.
