God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil.
For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed.
But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.
With Easter Sunday passing by, the question remains, have we changed? after Christ has died for us to forgive our sins, have we changed our lifestyle? have we sincerely asked for forgiveness?
Reflecting on this, one of the most important things to remind ourselves is the holy sacrament of confessions for the catholic or simply opening our selves to God and giving up all our sins to Him for Christians in general.
Now that we have been saved by Christ, have we accepted the fact of being saved? have we left all our sins to our Lord and believe in Him that He will forgive us? well, the fact is that we have already been saved, when God sent His only forgotten Son to die on the cross, light has been restored on earth. We have been forgiven despite us not asking for forgiveness. That is the love Christ has given us, a love that is unconditional, a love that was shown in the parable of the Prodigal son, a love that just overpowers the darkness in our lives.
We have been saved, but have we accepted that? have we changed our lives? or have we begun to change our lives for the better? or put it more simply, have we accepted Christ as our savior in our lives? The light of the world never disappoints to lighten up our lives whether we ask for it or not, its only up to us if we accept it or ignore it.
