In today’s Gospel, John tells us that Jesus came to bring light into the world, not to judge mankind. It is clear however, that to reject Jesus, is tantamount to rejecting God, and bringing judgement upon oneself. Jesus was sent to bring life and freedom to those who accept Him.
Whoever encounters Jesus and follows Him, walks in God’s life-giving light.
“Come, Lord Jesus Christ. Be with us now. Come and renew us. Come, oh, Prince of Peace. Dwell in our hearts. Come, be our way, our truth, and life. Conquer the night. Come, be our light, Emmanuel.”
