Become children of light

March 30, 2021

Isaiah 49:1-7 | 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 | John 12:20-36 | Psalm 71:1-14

“Walk while you have the light, so that the darkness may not overtake you. If you walk in the darkness, you do not know where you are going. While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become children of light.” [John 12:35-36]

In the beginning of the Bible, while GOD is creating the earth, ‘GOD said, “Let there be light,” ‘ [GEN 1:3] and there was light.

There already was light on the earth, we learned that in the beginning of the Bible. When Jesus says, “Walk while you have the light,” HE is talking about having HIM in your heart and in your life, because HE is the light that lights our way to Heaven. There are different types of light that we can use to light our way, from flashlights to candles to torches, but none of them will help you find the right path to Heaven and Jesus.

When we walk in the darkness, not only do we not know where we are going, but we can trip over things that we cannot see. Also, in the darkness, we can be tempted by the Devil, just as Jesus was tempted when He walked in the desert. Just think about any horror movie. They always show someone driving on a road at night with little or no streetlights, and the only light is what is coming from the car’s headlights. Then suddenly something steps onto the road, right in front of the car. Of course, the driver doesn’t see exactly what it is until the last moment. The driver tries to avoid it, by going around it, but whatever it is just keeps moving towards the car.  The end result, the driver runs it over.

Just think about that whole event, you’ll almost never see that happen in a horror movie when the sun is shining. With the exception of any zombie movie.

‘While you have the light, believe in the light’; that is what we do every Sunday morning when we attend church services.  We put our FAITH in GOD the Father, GOD the Son, and GOD the Holy Spirit, we ‘believe in the light’ so that we can enter into Eternal life with our LORD Jesus Christ and our loved ones that have gone before us.
