Today we hear the end of two testimonies. The First Letter of John, written so that we will enter into fellowship with God, concludes by urging us to remain in the truth. In the Gospel passage, John the Baptist points once again to Jesus before stepping out of the spotlight. Both testimonies direct our attention to God’s Son and through him, to the Father. Both testimonies warn us to withstand whatever tempts us to separate ourselves from God. Renew your baptismal promises today as a way of showing your rejection of evil and your commitment to God. Today’s Readings: 1 John 5:14–21; Psalm 149:1–2, 3–4, 5 and 6a and 9b; John 3:22–30.
