Day 6

Grace Day

from the This Is the Gospel reading plan


John 1:1-5

BY She Reads Truth

Use today to pray, rest, and reflect on this week’s reading, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.

-John 1:1–5

    Light always wins. Good always wins. God always wins. Mercy always wins.

    Nice to know that it’s impossible for the dark to overcome all the good & beautiful things that happen!

  3. Jennifer Lynnae says:

    God is the word !! In the word there is light that shines through any darkness !! Live in the truth that you have the power to rule over darkness because you have access to the word ❤️

    Isn’t it wonderful that, scientifically, light always overcomes darkness? Just a little light, and you can see in the darkness. But, just a little shadow? Tsk, not a big deal! What a great picture! Jesus is the true light, the only light that can shine in the darkness of sin-depraved humanity, and win.

    Ive always believed that all people are genuinely good. People just do bad things sometimes. I feel like thinking of others that way helps me show grace. Reading things like “we are all the light” and that the darkness cannot overcome us is so powerful. All people have a light in them somewhere. I feel like it’s important to remember this towards others & ourselves when we mess up.

      I know it’s nice to think of people as being generally good with occasional mistakes. And I love that your desire is to show grace to those around you. Be careful though to keep to the truth of scripture. God says that there is no one righteous, that we all have turned from him, that our hearts are deceitful, etc. The truth is that it’s not we who are the light — it’s Jesus! We don’t show grace to others because they’re basically good and just messed up this once, or because we ourselves are good and gracious, but because God, in sending Jesus to pay the penalty for the sinful words and actions that come from our deceitful hearts, is good and so amazingly full of grace. His light shines through us. I hear your heart, but I believe it’s vital that our minds be set on biblical truth and let our (hopefully) gracious words and actions flow out of that truth. Does that make sense?
