Dear John

Reading and hoping to memorize Bible verses from the book of John this year. Late getting started, but thankful to be starting. As I work on committing four verses to memory to get caught up, I am struck anew by how amazing God's love and grace to me is. The book of John isn't a new read, yet I am seeing it as if it hasn't ever been read before. Where did the fifth verse of chapter one come from? Where has it been when I read that chapter before? How did I misplace those lifechanging words?

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:5
 
Did you read that? "...the darkness has not overcome it" NOT. overcome. it. Those words contain the power to be total game changers. Now I have to ask myself. Do I live as if the light is shining in the darkness, and that the darkness has not overcome it? Do I live as one who knows that darkness is exposed by and chased away by the light? Jesus, the Light of the World? Do I live the words my head knows?
 
Praying to live as a vessel of darkness overcoming Light,
Abundantly Blessed @ Abundance House
 
Scriptures the writing was written after reading are: John 1, Eph. 3:13, 1 John 1, 1 Peter 2, and several others containing references to the word light. This study was both encouraging and strengthening, something everyone can use more of. True?
