2 John 1:3
Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
I do know that this is a comforting verse. Look at all the words that are used, the are not only comforting words, but they are a reflection of God. You really can't think about these words withouth thinking of our Heavenly Father and His Son. I will always go back to a mirror and challenge you to look inside and see what is being reflected. Do you like what you are seeing? If not, it is up to you to change that reflection. After all it is that reflection that we should be taking with us into the world this year. The challenge is for you to to be the light that reflects Jesus is all that you do this year!
