“I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”
Jesus came to expose the things that weigh us down, the things that lead us towards destruction. Much of life can seem confusing and even meaningless mostly because we live stuck in our sin and many times don’t even realize it. We are very crafty and can hide our hurts and secret sins very well from others. The problem is many times we forget that we hid them and they tend to creep up on us unknowingly over time. Unfortunately, when you get really good at this, never really dealing with your problems or facing your sins, you stop feeling and you become numb.
Jesus light exposes our darkness so as to keep it from destroying us. He wants to bring it out in the open to set you free from it.
Light exposes darkness but also illuminates the truth. Jesus light also brings forth the truth of who we are and what we were made to be. No more confusion or life without meaning, you were made for a purpose.
What is it about you that you are hiding from others or God or maybe even yourself?
Pray and ask the Lord to shine His light in and expose the ugly things, the embarrassing things, and the shameful things that have been hidden. Then allow Him heal you of that and remove it from you so you can be free of it.
The truth will set you free but you have to be willing to face the truth first and let Jesus deal with it.
