Jesus: light, freedom, life

jesuschristJohn 8.    The contrast that is seen throughout this chapter is between those who follow Jesus and those who have rejected him.

  1. Those who reject Jesus are walking in darkness and following their father, the devil.  Those who accept Jesus are living in the light and can understand his words.
  2. Those who reject Jesus are in bondage to evil.  Those who accept Jesus have been set free by the truth.
  3. Those who reject Jesus will seek to put him to death. They are living merely to die.  Those who accept Jesus will never really see death.  Their eternal lives are secured by his.

LORD, this day we choose your light, not darkness.  We want your freedom, not Satan’s chains.  We want eternal life.  For all these things, we place our trust in you.
