God Gave Light

thFor God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life. 17 Here’s the point. God didn’t send His Son into the world to judge it; instead, He is here to rescue a world headed toward certain destruction.

18 No one who believes in Him has to fear condemnation, yet condemnation is already the reality for everyone who refuses to believe because they reject the name of the only Son of God. 19 Why does God allow for judgment and condemnation? Because the Light, sent from God, pierced through the world’s darkness to expose ill motives, hatred, gossip, greed, violence, and the like. Still some people preferred the darkness over the light because their actions were dark. 20 Some of humankind hated the light. They scampered hurriedly back into the darkness where vices thrive and wickedness flourishes. 21 Those who abandon deceit and embrace what is true, they will enter into the light where it will be clear that all their deeds come from God. — John 3:16-21 (The Voice)

God gave us the Light. Come to the Light. Bow before Jesus in prayer. Know the Light. Read God’s wonderful story of Jesus in the Bible. Seek the Light and worship the Light. Jesus is the light of the world.

Continually seeking Him,

To Trust or Not To Trust

 For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that they might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him. He who believes in Him [who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him] is not judged [he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgment; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation—he incurs no damnation]; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already [he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence] because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ’s name.]      – John 3:17-18 (Amp)

God is calling everyone to trust in Him. We can escape condemnation and judgment simply by asking and seeking a relationship with Jesus Christ. Through Jesus we are not separated from God – giving us true and fulfilling lives. The choice is simple and it is personally yours. Don’t delay.You won’t be disappointed. You don’t have to trust me but you do need to trust Him. Seek Him today through His word and through prayer – just simply talking to Him like you do your best friend. All I can testify to is that I have tried and He is good.

No Condemnation

Therefore, (there is) now no condemnation (no ajudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live (and) walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. – Romans 8:1 (Amp)

Hallelujah! Although I am a sinner, I am free from the bondage of sin’s hold on me. Although I am guilty of breaking God’s law, I am free from judgment. The God who created me loves me and has given me a life of confident and peaceful living because Jesus Christ lives in me. When I surrender control of my life I experience the promises of His word. I am free from shame and guilt to live vicariously. Are you living a victorious life in Christ? You can. Seek Him today. He has a not guilty plea waiting for you.

Continually seeking Him,
