New International Version (NIV)
12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
To get out of darkness is an urgency for all those that still have not delivered themselves to Jesus so that He may be their Saviour, King and Lord. But those of us who are now children of God understand perfectly that without Christ we are living in darkness and although we try to minimize them or even worse want to ignore them, the reality is that sooner or later sadly we will eat a fruit of destruction and that is not the heart of God because He wants us all to be saved (John 3:16).
Let us not see sin as something normal because to practice it offends God and it doesn’t allow us to get closer to Him to change our lives, rather, the Bible teaches us that we have to repent of all our sins and confess them to God, so that we can be forgiven and Jesus receive us as His beloved disciples.
Coming to the light will cost us everything in our life because there we will realize that many people do not want to leave their world of darkness even if they try to justify themselves, but if we understand the revelation of eternity and the promises that we have in Christ, then let’s not delay giving up what the world has to offer and start living in God’s will (Luke 14: 25-27, Matthew 11: 28-30, Matthew 19:29).
*Only in Christ we will be living in the light and no darkness will have part or luck in our life, family and descendants, because where there is light there can be no darkness and Jesus taught many times about the blessing of coming to Him because He is the light of this world.
Today is your day to renounce darkness and leave all darkness to come to Jesus and enjoy eternity with Him (Romans 10: 8-13).
Christ in us our hope of glory and our world-changing victory (Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15:10, 57). Hallelujah.
