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.
It seems people today still prefer the darkness, the works that are trying to be done today are definitely not in the light. We are children of the light and must fight against the forces of darkness. We must do the work of God in the light of His resurrected Son. I choose light, what do you choose?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your Son. Help me to always walk in the light of your word. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
The Lord hears the cry of the poor, Alleluia.
