John 3 v 16-18:

from: The Amplified Bible:

"For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trustsin, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.   For God did not send his Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.   He who believes in Him [who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him] is not judged [he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgement; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation - he incurs no damnation]; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already [he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence] because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God.   [He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ's name.]"

from: The Message//Remix: Pause A daily reading Bible

"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son.   And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.   God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was.   He came to help, to put the world right again.   Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it.   And why?   Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him."

John 14 v 6

from: The Amplified Bible

"Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; No one comes to the Father except by (through) Me."

from: The Message//Remix: Pause A daily reading Bible.

"Jesus said, "I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life.   No one gets to the Father apart from me."
