Walk in the Light!
Jesus replied, “My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you. Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going. Put your trust in the light while there is still time; then you will become children of the light.”--------John 12: 35-36
In this passage of Scripture, Jesus was speaking to a crowd of people, who had just asked Him, “just who is the Son of Man, anyway?” This encounter happened just before His arrest.
His reply indicated that they needed to recognize who He was when He said; “My light will shine for you just a little longer.” Jesus is the LIGHT OF THE WORLD and in Him there is NO darkness. So He was telling them to BELIEVE in Him as the Son of Man, because they were living in the dark and needed to come into the LIGHT and to WALK in the LIGHT, while they can. He knew His time on earth was drawing to an end. And He wanted them to WALK or LIVE in the LIGHT, meaning for them to BELIEVE in Him and to LIVE for HIM.
If they rejected Him and did not BELIEVE in Him they would be OVERCOME with the darkness of this sinful, corrupt world. Those who walk in darkness cannot see where they are going, they have NO hope for their eternity. They are blinded with darkness and are overcome with its totality.
But He gives them HOPE, by telling them to TRUST in the LIGHT, basically He was telling them to TRUST in Him, while there is still time, because there would be a time when the opportunity to WALK in the LIGHT would come to an end, and they would NOT be able to come into the LIGHT, but would be overtaken by the darkness. He said IF they ACCEPT His invitation to WALK in the LIGHT, they can become children of the LIGHT and would be a part of His family.
This is a message for US today. We too NEED to WALK or LIVE in the LIGHT by ACCEPTING His invitation to do so. If you reject His invitation then you will be one who will be overtaken by the darkness, and will WALK in the darkness, not knowing where you are going, and without HOPE for your eternity. You NEED to ACCEPT His invitation NOW, time is running out. He is COMING SOON!
You have the opportunity to WALK in the LIGHT right NOW by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and come out of the darkness and into His glorious LIGHT. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!
