Joh 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Joh 3:17 "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
We often go through the day feeling as if someone is looking over our shoulder ready to judge our actions. And perhaps the voice we hear the most is our own: Why aren’t you good enough? Even if others praise us, the pressure we put on ourselves can drown out the latest acclaim. We put pressure on ourselves to do more – and do it better and quicker. How could God be pleased with us, we wonder, when we feel so weak? Listen to the words in John’s gospel. God wants a relationship with us – not to condemn us, but to free us. He offers redemption through Jesus – not because we have done something to deserve it, but because He loves us. God does not condemn you. None of the pressure you feel throughout the day is from God. “The less we are manipulated by the expectations of others, the more we are open to the expectations of God.” Yes we are weak. Yes, we often fail to meet our own expectations. But what does God expect of us today? To believe in His Son who set us free from sin. To believe that He is stronger than our doubts, fears, pride and ambition. To discover who we are in the light of His love, freedom and grace. – Women’s devotional Bible
