Commentary on the Gospel of

Bible Diary - CMF


What do you mean by “the world?”  This blue planet of ours, with its vast oceans, its beautiful rivers, lakes, and mountains, its countless forms of life, its infinitely precious and stricken human race?  No!  That is God’s work of art and the place where God’s Word pitched his tent.  What John means by “world” is not the physical world but all the power structures in it that are opposed to the coming of God’s Kingdom.  We have no choice but to be part of the physical world, but we are called to be drop-outs from all structures that bring death and desolation to humanity.  The most complete drop-out from such a “world” is the one who knows “you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”
