Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Light Reveals Evil – Fourth Night

John 3:18-21  NKJV

“He who believes in Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

The Light of Jesus Christ was sent to this world by God the Father so that not none would be lost and that all would receive eternal life. When we believe in Jesus and His name we are not condemned and we receive life instead of judgment.

John 5:24  NKJV

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”

John 6:40  NKJV

“And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Those that do not believe in Jesus or His name are condemned and they will receive judgment. God sent His Son, Jesus, to this world to show us the way to Himself. Jesus is the Light of the World. Throughout history and in this present age, people offer many excuses for not accepting Jesus as their Savior and the Lord of their life. The excuses they give are an attempt to hide what is really in their heart. Deep in their heart they do not want to accept Jesus as the Lord of their life. They do not want the light of Jesus to shine in them because if it does it will show them for what they really are – a sinner that does not want to change and who does not want to draw closer to God.

We must never forget that the Light of Jesus Christ reveals sin and enables us to see ourselves as we really are and as God sees us.

The true believer, however, welcomes the light of Jesus shining in them. The light will help them see what they need to do in order to draw closer to God.

Ephesians 5:8  NKJV

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light”

When we accept Jesus as our Savior we are changed. We were once children of darkness (sin) but we become children of the light (righteousness). Our new life must reflect that change in us in every area of our lives.

This year may each one of us welcome the light of Jesus Christ into our lives and may we do whatever it takes to draw closer to God.

 

Father,

Thank-you for the salvation that I receive through Jesus. Help me to never forget that the Light of Jesus Christ reveals sin and enables me to see myself as I really am and as God sees me. Help me to always welcome the light of Jesus shining in me. Help me to draw closer to You.

 In Jesus’ name, Amen.
