Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John Week 1 Day 3

Welcome to Week 1 Day 3 of Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John. I invite you to visit our Facebook group where you can view the posts for today — which includes a video from Br. Keith Nelson, SSJE  (also available below) to assist you in a guided meditation on today’s passage:

“God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.” 1 John 4:9-10

 

Love’s Self-offering

“We don’t have to earn this; this is a love that is given.”

Br. Keith Nelson suggests how praying with I John 4:9-10 can help us to trust in God’s grace, which transcends our individual feelings on any given day and prompts us to pray.
