Bringer of Eternal Light
Topic: AM Service Passage: John 3:31–36
The third chapter of John’s Gospel is filled with important and significant revelation. John narrates the discussion that Jesus has with Nicodemus, telling him that he cannot see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again, that the new birth comes from the Spirit, and that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life. Then John the Baptist tells us, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” At the close of the chapter, John tells us why we must listen to Jesus and why we must lift Him up. Jesus is the One who came from heaven and brought the message of heaven to us. Apart from the testimony of Jesus, the wrath of God will remain on us. Our default condition is to be condemned in our sins, but when we believe the testimony of Jesus, we will have eternal life. Jesus is the “Bringer of Eternal Life” (John 3:31-36).
