“This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to Him.” Read John 3:16 (MSG).
God’s redemptive plan for humanity saving us from spiritual depravity is the revelation of Christ in our respective context. Listen to this, “Christians should live in the world, but not be filled with it. A ship lives in the water; but if the water gets into the ship, she goes to the bottom. So Christians may live in the world; but if the world gets into them, they sink.” Dwight L. Moody. The Bible then says, “Do not get drunk with wine, for that is wickedness (corruption, stupidity), but be filled with the [Holy] Spirit and constantly guided by Him.” Read Ephesians 5:18 (AMP). In other words, ‘Immersing ourselves, being soaked constantly’ in the presence of God.
The human race ought not to be in darkness because Jesus said, “He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we’ve learned: that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, who offered Himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free. Eventually, the news is going to get out. This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth.” Read 1 Timothy 2:4-7 (MSG).
My Father, thank You for enlightenment, illumination and comprehension of Your word. Thank You because You decided to “commit Your Word – the treasure in my earthen vessel, and for that, I am eternally grateful for the transformative power in Your grace.
