“This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil.” John 3:19
If there is an opportunity for evil to crop into my life it is when I am staying away from interacting with the Light [Word of God]. I will stay away when I refuse to admit that there is some particular sin in my life and I am unwilling to confess it to the Savior. I stay away from the Book because I know from experience that it will expose my sin. That is what I have found that Light does. It is going to expose my flaws and prevents me from denying the sin exists. What is exposed I cannot logically deny. Sin is a darkness of the soul and wants to remain hidden.
I am not different than all the rest of mankind. I do not want the evil in me to be exposed by the Light. I toy with those around me by revealing only those “self-made good things” that I want others to see. You see, I want to be seen as a hero; a spiritual giant. But God knows better. The Light removes all doubt of the “good’s” origin and there fore it is revealed as evil by the Light. That exposes me as a fraud.
Good things can only be done in and through the Light. Light can produce good things in the darkness. When that happens, the darkness is exposed. Light always overpowers darkness.
Father, Make me an instrument of Your light. Help me to do and say only those things that come from Your Light.
