16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 17 "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. 18 "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. 19 "And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil. 20 "For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 "But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
"He who believes in Him is not judged"
Christ died paying the penalty for sin with His own life and suffering. By accepting His sacrifice, His love, -- you will
be saying "yes" to God. You do not have to understand the details of Theology. Christ came to the earth. He healed the sick, brought sight to the blind and raised the dead. In doing so He fulfilled the scriptures. He was the unblemished lamb, which had to be sacrificed for atonement of sins as in Old Testament times, because He was begotten of the Father and born of a virgin. He was the only begotten Son of God.
How did men treat Christ when He did these good deeds? How do men treat one another today? Are there any real differences in man's behavior today? The truth is that we are all guilty and need a Savior regardless of how good we may actually be or feel we are. We do not understand our true condition nor could we till the light of Christ shines in our heart. After one accepts Christ and time passes on, we see the darkness of our own ways compared to the brilliance of Christ's love for us and how He bore it all upon Himself on the cross. There is no greater love than this.
If you feel a slight pull upon your heart; a curiosity to find out more, why don't you say the prayer below asking Him to come into your life and to forgive you.
No matter what you have done or have not done, Christ has taken the full punishment for all the sins of mankind. It is up to each individual to accept the sacrifice God has provided.
Confessing to God that I am a sinner, and believing that the Lord Jesus Christ died for my sins on the cross and was raised for my justification, I now receive and confess Him as my personal Savior
I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
1st John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We love him, because he first loved us.
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
