Dear beloved congregation,

Welcome to our time of gathering in the presence of our Lord. It is a joy to come together as a community of faith, seeking to grow deeper in our relationship with Christ and one another. May our hearts be open to receive the Word of God and may His Spirit guide us as we journey together in discipleship and spiritual growth.

Opening Prayer

Gracious Heavenly Father,

We come before You with hearts full of gratitude for the opportunity to gather together in Your name. As we enter into this time of worship and reflection, we ask for Your presence to be palpably felt among us. Open our minds to receive Your truth, soften our hearts to Your leading, and empower us by Your Spirit to live as faithful disciples of Christ. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Introduction to Scripture

Events in John 3:14-21

In the Gospel according to John, we find Jesus engaged in a profound conversation with Nicodemus, a Pharisee and ruler of the Jews. In this encounter, Jesus speaks of the necessity of being born again, of water and the Spirit, to enter the kingdom of God. He refers to an event from the Israelites’ history, when Moses lifted up the bronze serpent in the wilderness, foreshadowing His own lifting up on the cross. Jesus reveals that God’s love for the world is so great that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. However, He also exposes the reality that those who reject Him stand condemned already because they prefer darkness over light.

NIV Bible Verse: John 3:14-21

John 3:14-21 (NIV)

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.
20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
