John 12:44-50 NLT
Jesus shouted to the crowds, “If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me. For when you see me, you are seeing the one who sent me. I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark. I will not judge those who hear me but don’t obey me, for I have come to save the world and not to judge it. But all who reject me and my message will be judged on the day of judgment by the truth I have spoken. I don’t speak on my own authority. The Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it. And I know his commands lead to eternal life; so I say whatever the Father tells me to say.”
Reflection . . .
Christ came to shine light in the darkness so that we may no longer remain in the darkness. God’s commands lead to eternal life.
Jesus’ life, all his teachings pointed to God and his purpose. His purpose is to shine light in the darkness, to see good triumph over evil, to see people’s lives transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ, have eternal life!
Faith in Jesus Christ, trusting in him, is trusting in God and we live in His light.
