“Whoever believes in me, believes not n me but in the one who sent me, and who ever sees me sees the one the one who sent me. I, the light, have come into the world so that whoever believes in me need not stay in the dark anymore. If anyone hears my words and does not keep them faithfullyit is not I who will condemn him, since I did not come to condemn the world, but to save the world; he who rejects me and refuses my words has his judge already: The word itself I have spoken will be his judge on the last day.”
The Gospel of John is loaded! It is not meant for the Sunday Morning Christian. It is meant for the Everyday Christian. These verses speak directly to the point. Keep His Word faithfully! Failure to do so will be your judgment. The key words, the word itself will be the judge. How you lived according to the word. So in the new Path of God, are you going to continue to pass your gaze at the world or are you going to keep your eyes straight on the Word?
If you believe with all your heart, your focus will be only on Jesus and His choices. You will see with His eyes, hear with His ears. Bless as He blessed and remember that He only forgave, never condemned.
Prayer for Today: I believe, Lord, I believe. Show me open my eyes, my ears to see and hear every word in my heart. Amen
44 And Jesus cried out and said, “Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. 45 And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. 47 If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.
