A WORD ABOUT THE WORD
by Deacon Bob Fishman
Do you remember a Quarterback for the Denver Broncos named Tim Tebow? He made national headlines not
only for his playing ability but also for his faith. Under
his eyes he would often write the scripture abbreviation
John 3:16. Growing up I would often see people at
various sporting events holding up the same bible reference. Why is this verse of Sacred Scripture so important? Today’s gospel reading is that very same verse. It
is a primary gospel message and it is short and powerful. It reminds us that God gave us His only begotten
Son and to believe in Him. (Incidentally, begotten is
a term which means of the same essence). However,
there is more to that passage which is often not quoted
or painted on faces and signs. It is this: “people preferred darkness to light.” This ties in well with the other
two readings. In Chronicles we read that people kept
adding sin upon sin and disregarded God in their lives.
This led to years of captivity and the temple being destroyed. St. Paul tells us that even while we were doing
stupid, sinful things, God loved us and sent Christ Jesus
for us, to remind us that we are God’s handiwork and
to walk as children of the light. As we look at today’s
society and the news, or movies or television shows, we
can plainly see the sins and vices of humanity openly
displayed. We see our Church and beliefs mocked and
ridiculed, and if someone tries to live a virtuous life,
then they are considered out of touch or more “holier
than thou” etc. How sad is this? The words of our
Lord have come to pass. People would rather live their
lives in the darkness of sin, then to live in the light. Mr.
Tebow had it right in trying to remind this generation
that “God so loved the world that He gave His only Son,
so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish
but might have eternal life.” So, if you have been wandering in darkness, if you have felt alone and wounded
by bad choices, if you are just tired of being tired, then it
is time to walk in the ‘Son-shine’ and allow the Light of
Christ to melt the sin in your soul. Aren’t you ready for
a change…Something to think about…May God richly
bless you always…
