From Icon Church in Seattle, WA
We live in a world that constantly makes claims on our attention and pleas for our loyalty. Whether it is political or cultural leaders aiming to convince us of their ability to satisfy our needs or media companies vowing to make us feel connected and important, we are inundated with false promises. The Gospel of John offers us an alternative. Over and over, John tells us that Jesus is the One that we need, the one who tells us who we are and gives us what we need. He is the One who Judges. He is the One with real Power. He is the One who tells us the Truth. He is the One that can give us Eternal Life. Most Importantly, Jesus is the One who is God, which means that he and he alone can make good on all of his promises.
