14 Sep John 1: 9-13

There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

Jesus is the real Light. All other lights are imperfect. The great thing is that God has revealed something of Himself to everyone. He has set His Light and He is with us. So why do so many live with indifference and ignorance, alienated from God and still in the darkness? Not only do lost people not know Him, but Jesus came to His own and they did not know Him. Many who have been enlightened and have shared in the Holy Spirit still refuse to understand Him. Too many people remain in their miniscule understanding and choose their sin over their Savior. The good news is that a remnant will receive Him and they will become the children of God. It is time for us to examine our lives, repent of our sin, and live in the life and light of Jesus Christ. Where do you stand?
