Read John 3:27-36
The Father loves the Son extravagantly. He turned everything over to him so he could give it away– a lavish distribution of gifts. 36 That is why whoever accepts and trusts the Son gets in on everything, life complete and forever! And that is also why the person who avoids and distrusts the Son is in the dark and doesn’t see life. All he experiences of God is darkness, and an angry darkness at that. ”
This morning I am paying the price of staying up too late. It was hard to roll out of bed just a handful of hours after falling asleep. But in the quiet of this morning I am moved deeply by the closing words from the third chapter of John. What a great reminder to begin today. All that our Father God has and all that he is has been lavished upon Jesus. When we follow him, and trust him we get in on everything! The alternative doesn’t sound very good. So today, and always I will follow you and trust you. You are good and there is no place I would rather be than with you.
