Today's scripture reading was John 12:44-46, which applies perfectly to this Christmas season.
The New King James Versions reads:
"Then Jesus cried out,
“Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.
The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me.
I have come into the world as a light,
so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness."
The First Nation Version - An Indigenous Translation of the New Testament reads:
"As he was leaving, Creator Sets Free (Jesus) turned around,
lifted his voice, and cried out to the people one last time,
'If you trust me, you are not only trusting me, but the one who sent me.
When you see me, you see the one who sent me.
I came into this dark world as a shining light,
so the ones who trust me will no longer have to stumble in the darkness.'"
Today take a few moments and ponder the glorious, merciful gift of Jesus. God loves you!
God's blessings and peace be upon you ~
