GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE PROBLEM OF SIN
John 3:16-19 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
PERCEPTION // What I see/hear God saying/doing:
Everything God does is motivated by love for His world. There is not one iota of His being that exists other than to love. He is who He is, and does what He does, entirely for the good of us and His creation.
Because He is pure love, it exposes me and reveals in me all the darkness of non love.
PLAN // What I am going to do about it:
I often love food more than people. Therefore, I am fasting on Mondays and praying for key peeps in my community.
PRAYER // Seal the deal:
Lord, I know my self-love is filled through food. I need Your grace as I enter into this challenge. I do not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from You. Give me Your power to obey You because I love darkness instead of light. Let Your light shine in my darkness and turn it into love for Your people.
