DAILY READINGS: 1 Chron. 22-23; Ezek. 20:45-21:32; John 7:31-8:11

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:19, KJV

This is the commendation:—”But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8, KJV). No cause could be found in us that He should love us; He loved us, because God is love. But “men loved darkness rather than light.” This is the condemnation. When there is every reason why men should love God, and hate their sin; yet men hate God and love their sin, because their deeds are evil. It is only a proper appreciation of the love of God that will cause us to love Him and hate our sin. —E. Van Ryn

That Thou couldst be a God to me and be the God Thou art, Is darkness
to my intellect, but sunshine to my heart. —Author Unknown
