Brothers and sisters in Christ,
There is something wondrous about “basic/simple/clear” Bible verses. The above verses (1 John 4:10-11) from Sunday’s epistle reading have a “John 3:16/Psalm 23” feel to it. What a beautiful summation of how God has delivered his love to us and why we are to love others. The one confusing word, in this otherwise clear section, is propitiation. It is a word that means “wrath bearer”. Why is this important? Simply put, our deserved judgement lands on the Son rather than us. These are verses worth committing to memory. Have a blessed weekend!
In His service,
