31 Dec The Truth (1 Jn 2:18) by Shane Kapler
Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that the antichrist was coming, so now many antichrists have appeared. ~ 1 Jn 2:18
Reflection: On this final day of the year our minds naturally turn toward endings and new beginnings. Today’s verse is a reminder that in the Church’s dark times, when “many antichrists have appeared,” and she has been persecuted to the point of martyrdom, her clinging to “the truth” has always allowed God to bring about a new birth. As it was in the beginning, so it will be in the end. “In the beginning was the Word…what came to be through Him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” Jn 1:1-4. Jesus – the way, truth and life – is unchanging, and therefore, utterly dependable.
Challenge: After reflecting upon this past year’s activities to advance the Culture of Life, ask the Holy Spirit to indicate to you how you can best serve in the year ahead. Take at least five minutes to mull that over in the Lord’s presence.
