Meditative words of the night time conversation
John 3:13-21 13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man. 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.
On my drive home last night I spoke with 2 Pastors who are each facing extremely difficult situations.
One had major health concerns and the other was in a wilderness.
I think and pray for them this morning as I read this part 2 of Jesus conversation with Nicodemus in the night.
Conscious of others who equally may be reading this and facing such challenging circumstances I write down the words I have just been meditating on that have brought strength to my own life this morning. Take a few moments to choose one or two to ponder on for yourself.
- Another world.
- Authority on earth is from and out of heaven.
- Jesus lifted up.
- Condemnation unnecessary.
- Jesus is Light.
- Darkness is a choice.
- Hate and fear belong in the darkness.
- Live by the Truth.
- In the sight of God.
