In the beginning there was light and life and love. There was the Father loving His Son in the joy of the Holy Spirit and everything has come from light and life and love. And out of this has come a world that is destined to share in light and life and love.
But we know that the world is not like that. We look around and we see darkness and death and disconnection. Where has that come from? Well, we’ve turned from the light, and when you turn from the light, where else do you go but to darkness. And when you turn from love, where else do you go but disconnection? And when you turn from life, where else do you go but death? So this is the kind of world we live in.
But what does love do? When love sees the beloved in trouble, love says, “Your pit will be my pit, your plight will be my plight, your debt will be my debt, your darkness will be my darkness, your death with be my death.”
So who is Jesus? Jesus is love come down. The Son of the Father comes and becomes our brother, to be with us in the darkness. To take that darkness on Himself on the cross. To take that disconnection on Himself. Even to take that death that we all deserve for turning from God. He took that on Himself – on the cross – plunged it down, into the hell that it deserves. And He rose up again, to light and life and love.
Then He says, “You in the darkness, do you want My light? You in death, do you want My life? You in disconnection, do you want My love?” And if we simply says “yes” to Jesus, then we get Jesus in our life. We get His Father as our Father, we get His Spirit as our Spirit, we get His future as our future.
It’s all for free and it’s forever. So do you want Jesus?
