John 12:46-47 NRSVue

46I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness. 47I do not judge anyone who hears my words and does not keep them, for I came not to judge the world but to save the world.

Some thoughts on this scripture

Lord you are a special sort of light: a kindly light who leads me; but also a light mixed with darkness. There can be obscurity in my faith, periods when, like John of the Cross, I leave the understanding behind, in order to go to God by love. In that darkness I can always return to the memory of Jesus' humanity, and God shining through it.
