“Then Jesus spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.” So the Pharisees said to Him, “You are testifying about Yourself. Your testimony is not valid.” “Even if I testify about Myself,” Jesus replied, “My testimony is valid, because I know where I came from and where I’m going. But you don’t know where I come from or where I’m going. You judge by human standards. I judge no one. And if I do judge, My judgment is true, because I am not alone, but I and the Father who sent Me judge together. Even in your law it is written that the witness of two men is valid. I am the One who testifies about Myself, and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me.” Then they asked Him, “Where is Your Father? ” “You know neither Me nor My Father,” Jesus answered. “If you knew Me, you would also know My Father.” He spoke these words by the treasury, while teaching in the temple complex. But no one seized Him, because His hour had not come.”, John 8:12-20 HCSB
- Again, no one was going to be able to do anything to Jesus until it was time.
- Often times I feel as though I am walking around in the dark about certain (many) areas of my life. I agonize over decisions I have to make and second guess myself often (or I will feel guilty). The good news is that Jesus is the light of the world and His light will guide me into all things, if I follow Him!
“Not that I have already reached the goal or am already fully mature, but I make every effort to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus. Therefore, all who are mature should think this way. And if you think differently about anything, God will reveal this also to you. In any case, we should live up to whatever truth we have attained.”, Philippians 3:12-16 HCSB
- This sounds to me that if I am off in my thinking and choices, and I am seeking God, that He will reveal it to me. How does He reveal His will?
“Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.”, Romans 12:1-2 HCSB
