This week, we continue our mid-Lent excursion into the Gospel of John.

If God didn’t send Jesus to condemn the world, then we aren’t called to condemn the world either. Ouch! Seems like another opportunity for confession. But also, perhaps it is an opportunity to introduce a spiritual discipline. If we’re going to follow Jesus by choosing love instead of condemnation, then we’re definitely going to need some opportunities to practice recognizing condemnation internally and externally and turning toward love instead.
