    For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
    —John 3:17 (NIV)
    Christ came, not so much to preach the Gospel, as that there might be a Gospel to preach.
    ... Robert W. Dale (1829-1895), parapharsed from The Atonement, London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1875, p. 46 (see the book)
    See also John 3:17; 1:17; 14:6; Rom. 3:21-22; 5:20-21; 2 Cor. 1:20; Heb. 9:22; Rev. 5:9-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your presence within is the Gospel.
