JESUS is our SAVIOR

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD April 14, 2021  EASTER WEDNESDAY 2 WORD of the DAY  God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
