Three Other Believers On: Light, Life, Love

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*
Light, Life, Love

There was a Light Shone that night.
Wondrous bright Angel... Star:
O what a sight.

There was a Life Born that night.
God's Own Son Incarnate came:
Mystery to earth's sin and strife.

There was His Love Proved from above:
Tiny Baby, God Himself, came to die for all of us:
O what Love!

"Light shows us the way. Life is the way. Love is the mortar that holds all things together. Let us live in the light and be vessels of love so that the world may believe that God sent the Son of His love."

B. Johannine scheme. — Eternal Life is the point of stress in the Johannine scheme. It works itself out in a series of three antitheses subsumed under the general and inclusive one of God versus the world, viz.  light v. darkness, life v. death, love v. sin = unrighteousness. God and Christ, working in the Pauline scheme as righteousness and wisdom, work here as light, life, love, driving away darkness, death, sin; restoring life to its full completion by this self-revelation of the Divine Life which is at the same time the principle of the world's real life (Logos).
