Our scripture this morning is John 5:22-24.

For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son, so that all will honor the Son just as they honor the Father. The one who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. Truly, truly, I say to you, the one who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

Jesus explains the relationship He has with God and the responsibility God has given Him. We are called to the same relationship and a similar set of responsibilities. Just as He was gifted to accomplish the purpose set for Him, so we too have unique gifts to do the work God has for us.

We must honor Jesus as we do God in order to reconnect with Him. The promise made to us is that by believing in Christ and the Father who sent Him, our sins can be forgiven and we may have eternal life with Him. This is the New Covenant from our Creator.

God will always keep His promise. We may choose selfishly and fail, but when we come to Him honestly in repentance, we can be made new through that promise. God has never given up on us and He never will.

Loving Lord, we are grateful for Your abiding love and grace to us. Refresh our spirits and send us to share Your love with everyone. Amen.
