Let us reflect on some simple truths today…

  • God loves us unconditionally
  • He desires a relationship with us.
  • Jesus is the way, the truth, the light, life.
  • He did not come to condemn but to save us.
  • We cannot enter into a relationship with Him if we do not give Him the truth of our heart.
  • Even though He already knows our deepest, darkest secrets, we must of our own free will, give it to Him. Until we do, we walk in darkness.
  • Only then can healing take place, in His mercy.
  • Only when we surrender to Him by emptying ourselves of worldliness, can the Holy Spirit through Christ fill us.
  • We walk in the light and give glory to God by our thoughts, words and action.

GOSPEL John 3:16–21

God so loved the world that he gave his only–begotten 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–begotten 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.
