Are You Ready To Walk In The Light?
For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” — John 3:20-21
In this life, some people live in intentional ignorance. They would rather not know the truth because knowing the truth would make them culpable, which would mean they would have to change because they are wrong. And over the last few years, there's been a lot of this going on all over the world. And we all know this is true. Government, education, politics, businesses, and media turn a blind eye to these issues. And we, the people, know this happens because we have done it too. We turn a blind eye to our repetitive sin, problems in our marriage, and outstanding issues at work. And why? Because knowing and dealing with the truth is hard work. So we prefer to live in bondage under a system of lies because it is the path of least resistance.
But, in contrast, there is another man. He is the one who loves truth and understanding. He is willing to be exposed and lives consciously free. He is free from hiding, and because of this, he has a certainty of action in everything he does. And this certainty gives him the freedom to live his life without the concern that one day he is going to get caught.
And with this, the late-night dialogue between Nicodemus and Jesus ends. The proposition is this. Are you ready to live in the light or understanding? Or will you continue to live in the darkness of human ignorance? And Jesus, the man who is the world's light, is sitting across from him, offering the invitation.
ASK THIS: Is there something in your life you need to bring to the light?
DO THIS: Confess it and live free.
PRAY THIS: God, give me your understanding.
PLAY THIS: My Lighthouse.
