19th April 2012 John 3:31-end
The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. Whoever has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.
How I hate the word wrath; such anger and disappointment and disapproval. Not very graceful is it? It's another of those days where the scripture makes me feel uncomfy and not in a way that us good and challenging.
Jesus help us understand scripture and the truth that you know, help us see through the darkness and confusion of human translation and see the light of your love. Amen
