14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”
16 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. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
Missio Community – Portland, Oregon
Observation: Father, I am reminded today of Your great love for me, and the amazing gift You have given me in Jesus Christ. Thank You, Jesus, that in You I am saved, not condemned, and walk in the freedom and power of Your light!
Action: I am going to take action to intentionally practice walking in the freedom and light of Jesus this week. Three days this week, I am going to call KB to confess and pray through any struggles and frustrations (“works of evil”) from the day, bringing them into the light of Jesus in community.
