What does this famous passage say about the love of God?
John says in v. 19: “Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light, because their deeds were evil.” Why do people love the darkness instead of light? What’s so deceptive about the darkness?
What is our part to play in God’s rescue plan? What does it mean to “believe” (v. 18) and to “live by the truth” (v. 21)?
Pastor Jeanine said we can join in God’s rescue plan by Seeking Truth (pursuing gospel truth even in unexpected places) and Telling the Truth (calling each other out when we fall short). In which of these areas do you need to grow?
