A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John
Jesus said to Nicodemus:
“Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
And this is the verdict,
that the light came into the world,
but people preferred darkness to light,
because their works were evil.
For everyone who does wicked things hates the light
and does not come toward the light,
so that his works might not be exposed.
But whoever lives the truth comes to the light,
so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.

Hello to everyone who is listening.
My name is Elizabeth and I am from the United States.
Thank you so much for listening to the Gospel with me today.
Let's look at a word that is difficult to pronounce.
A word that is used here is “condemn”.
This word is difficult to pronounce because it has an “M” and an “N” at the end of it.
But do not worry, the “N” is silent, so you only say the “M”.
It sounds like this
“Con- demn”, “Con- demn”.
它听起来是这样的“Con- demn”, “Con- demn” 。
To condemn means to judge someone or something as bad.
This Gospel reminds us of how much God loves us
and he sent his son to save us
that is to forgive our sins and bring us life.
When you feel you can do nothing good because you are weak and sinful,
remember how much God loves you and ask him to bring you life,
And ask the spirit to fill you, because without God we can do nothing but with Him, we can do all things.
Do not then be discouraged in reading English.
It is very difficult to pronounce sometimes but continue and you will always get better.
Thank you so much for listening to the Gospel with me.
Goodbye to everyone.
