God calls each of us to pray personally and enter into relationship with Him.
In John's Gospel, we hear the story of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem for the Passover festival. Some Greeks approach Philip to take them to see Jesus--whose fame is now spreading. Philip and Andrew want Jesus to meet the Greeks, but instead Jesus begins to speak cryptically about his death and about the redemption of the world. We are left with the question: do we approach Jesus as if we are a "clueless sidekick" and only know about his fame? Or do we have an understanding of the bigger picture of our role in God's redeeming grace as part of the Body of Christ?
God calls us to be people of prayer, so we can align our hearts with Him and do the mission He has called us to in reaching the world.
John 3:17 is often overshadowed by the individual power and significance of John 3:16 but these words give us great insight to Christ's purpose and our mission while on this earth: For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world might be saved through him. We must commit actions of love and service and do so in the name of Christ.

John 3:16 is perhaps the most famous Bible verse there is. It is often described as a "summary of the Gospel." It is a wonderful description of God's love for God's creation in sending God's only Son. However, seeing the verses that follow it "flesh out" the context of the community of the Gospel of John. This is not a verse about "who is in" and "who is out." Instead, it's about God's overwhelming love for creation from the beginning. Our response, then, is to continue in the "belief" of that overwhelming love of God for all.
