Light and Sin

Re:Verse reading–John 3:1-21 (day two) 

This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. Vs. 19

The truth in a nutshell: if you have seen the light and hope of Jesus, and refuse to surrender your life to him, then you love sin more than salvation. We can wrap it in a different package, and make it more palatable, but the reality is what it is. This method of delivery might not be the best form of evangelism coming from any other mouth than Jesus. He was not trying to shame Nicodemus into heaven. He was simply offering an insight only Jesus can provide. To truly know him, is to surrender. Anything else…is sin.

One thought on “Light and Sin”

  1. God is the light. If we are not walking in the light, we have no warrant for believing that our sins are forgiven. There is no assurance of salvation while we are living in darkness and disobedience.

    God tells us how we can be redeemed. He gives us a total freedom to choose how to live our lives. He gives us free will to choose: ligbt or sin/darkness. There are benefits of living in the light and consequences for living in darknesses/sins. There are real applications in life for following where light is. We see better and can improve what we see or change the current situation to one that we desire. Following God will help us avoid the path of darkness so we can live in peace, joy and harmony. The end result is to be approved by God and to live with Him in eternity.
