Our focus today is the idea “God so loved the world”. This is the sentiment of the early church according to John and his community. It is a message of love. We need to hear this message now more than ever. We live in a love-infused universe. Through this life of love, we experience the world. It is a light in darkness. It is a way of life the early Christians came to know through Jesus. God is love and generates more love as a result. By living a life of love, we become the children of God. Evil cannot dim or extinguish this light. Despite there being evil, we must live a life of love anyway. By living this life, we will save the world. Lift up the light so others might see the love. A life of love can change the world!
