The Light

My phone has an app on it called flash cards. On the flash cards, I can put whatever I want on them, so I've been putting bible versus on them. I've been looking up all the versus about Light today, starting in the book of John. The first verse I keyed in was in John 1:4,5 "In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it."  Then, I moved on to John 3: 19-21 'This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved 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 for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
I think it may take me awhile to get all the versus in my flash cards on LIGHT. But, these two versus  are a good start, because they make it pretty clear. If I do not choose Light,  which is life and Christ, then I will walk in darkness. I will be fearful of being exposed and I will stumble around in darkness. I will actually hate the Light!  But, if I practice living IN truth, that is speaking truth, believing truth, learning truth, knowing truth, I will come to the Light, and my deeds will be manifested as if they were shaped by God!
I continue to ask God to reveal His light and His truth to me. To shine His Light brightly so there will be no darkness at all in any place. He is Light, He is Life, and He does expose all things. He is the revealer,  the transformer, the renewer, the redeemer.
Jesus, Say that Again to me everyday. Shine Your Light on me and through me, use me to further Your Kingdom and Your Light today!
