John 3:13-17

13No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man. 14As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.

16″For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

John 4:34

34Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.

John 6:51

51I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.”

John 8:12

12Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

John 9:39

39And Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, so that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind.”

John 10:10

10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

John 11:50-52

50nor do you take into account that it is expedient for you that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish.” 51Now he did not say this on his own initiative, but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, 52and not for the nation only, but in order that He might also gather together into one the children of God who are scattered abroad.

John 12:27

27″Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour.

Acts 5:31

31He is the one whom God exalted to His right hand as a Prince and a Savior, to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

  1. Jesus was focused on doing the will of His Father. How do we know what God’s will is for us?
  2. Describe the abundant life that Jesus offers.
