Assurance of Pardon: John 3:16-17

Here are words of assurance inspired by John 3:16-17.  They were written by Thom Shuman.

Assurance of Pardon
(inspired by John 3:16-17)

How much does God love us?
Enough to send the divine heart, hope, and spirit to us,
not to condemn us, but to save us.
Not by our speaking or doing,
but by God's good and precious grace are we saved.
Thanks be to God! Amen.
