19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. John 3:19-21
Jesus is the light of the world. Those who love this world and its wicked ways choose to reject Jesus Christ. There is only one way to the Father and it is through Jesus alone. Many claim to be a way to Heaven, but there is only one way to Heaven and His name is Jesus.
Those who desire truth will be drawn by the Holy Spirit and have their eyes open to the truth of God’s word and the truth of who Jesus is. It is not we who first come to God, but it is God who first draws us. The Holy Spirit knocks on hearts and some will decide to humble themselves before Jesus, but sadly many more will choose to reject Jesus because of the comfort and desires of the sinful nature.
For those of us who are in Christ we have been saved by the grace of God. All of our lives we should walk in humility and continue to grow in maturity in Christ. Our lives should be living sacrifices before the Lord and the fruit of the Holy Spirit should continue to grow in our lives. If we are not growing in maturity we need to ask ourselves why. This doesn’t happen in our own strength, it simply happens as we abide in Him and grow in deeper intimacy.
