God is love, but He is also justice and truth. We are called to live like Him to the best of our human ability. That means that we stand apart from the world. That we speak truth, even if it goes against the grain. It means that we use His Word as a guidebook rather than cherry-pick what we want from it. It means that we’re going to be hated and scorned and judged. It means that we can’t tippy-toe around the hard stuff.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
