TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son,

so that everyone who believes in Him

may not perish but may have eternal life.”

.

– John 3:16 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

“For God so loved the world…”

How precious we must be in the eyes of the Creator!

Christ’s death on the Cross is the supreme sign of God’s love for us.

His self-surrender is a pressing call to respond to His great love for us.

“So that everyone who believes in Him…”

Jesus demands that we have faith in Him

as a first prerequisite to sharing in His love.

Faith brings us out of darkness into the light,

and sets us on the road to salvation.

QUOTE…

.

"For God so loved the world

that He gave His only Son for its salvation.

All our religion is a revelation of God’s kindness, mercy and love for us.

‘God is love’, that is, love poured forth unsparingly.

.

All is summed up in this supreme truth,

which explains and illuminates everything.

The story of Jesus must be seen in this light.

.

(He) loved me’, St. Paul writes (Gal 2:20).

Each of us can and must repeat it for himself

– ‘He loved me, and gave Himself for me.’"

.

– Pope Paul VI

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

He loved me, and gave Himself for me.

Jesus, You loved me, and gave Yourself for me!
