Thought for the Day – 27 December

It is a long way from being eager to sit on a throne of power or to call down fire from heaven to becoming the man who could write: “The way we came to know love was that he laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers” (1 John 3:16).

After the Resurrection and Pentecost, St John spent his life in bearing witness to Jesus and saw in the Incarnation the very foundation of his existence, all that he was.  There is really no other way – and if we love Him we have no choice but to prove it in word and deed, in our love for everyone!

St John Pray for us!
