For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.
Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father's name testify about me,
But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."
