John 12:44-47 (TPT) Jesus’ Last Public Teaching
44 Jesus shouted out passionately, “To believe in me is to also believe in God who sent me. 45 For when you look at me you are seeing the One who sent me. 46 I have come as a light to shine in this dark world so that all who trust in me will no longer wander in darkness. 47 If you hear my words and refuse to follow them, I do not judge you. For I have not come to judge you but to save you.
The Word of God will always face a measure of rejection, because Jesus taught, “God will blessed those who do not reject me” (Matt 11:16). The Word definitely divides people into two groups: those who accept and those who reject the salvation God offers. Even though Jesus teaches he did not come to earth to judge humanity, the Word of God will still be the Light of salvation for the human soul. Please don’t wander in the darkness. Come to the Light of God’s Word and let Christ save you.
Prayer: Lord, I realize salvation is offered to the whole world. Your goodness and mercy is perfect and your plan is all encompassing for those who hear the Word and do not reject it. Therefore, today I pray for every human heart to turn and accept the Light that leads to life in Christ. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
