Light does not give in to darkness
Jesus Christ is the Light of the world and He came into the world to take away the sins of the world, to condemn sin in the flesh. He proved that it is possible for flesh and blood to OBEY God, to live Holy and Righteous. Jesus Christ was a man like us, flesh and blood, and He lived holy and righteous, and if we follow Him we DO as He did, we become LIGHT in a world of darkness. And if we follow Jesus Christ then our lives bring judgment on this world because then we ourselves are LIGHT IN DARKNESS. A child of God does not sin. A child of God lives a holy life and does not associate with evil, with wrong, unrighteousness and therefor we bring judgment on this world as Jesus also said.
I read in John 3:19 "And this is the judgment that the Light is come into the world and men loved the darkness rather than the light for their DEEDS WERE EVIL. For everyone who does evil hates the light and does not come to the Light least his deeds should be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
If we follow Jesus Christ we WALK IN THE LIGHT and we are the Light of the world. Light does not compromise with darkness. Light EXPOSES darkness. If you have the LIGHT of Christ in you, you do not compromise with the world, you do not become like them because you are LIGHT. If we compromise with the world then we are darkness, then we are not of Christ and we will perish. We are either light in darkness or we ourselves are darkness and we will perish.
If we follow Jesus Christ WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, we are not sinners and compromisers, we are the IMAGE of Jesus Christ in this world. We are LIGHT and therefor the life that we live judges the world. That is why those who truly follow Jesus Christ will be hated, will be rejected, will be persecuted by this world because this world loves darkness and hates the LIGHT.
Are we LIGHT or are we darkness? Are we of this world or are we of Jesus Christ? If we are LIGHT we will shine.
May Jesus bless you.
