Come to the Light

This week on Wednesday evening we'll gather at Crossroads for another in the series of worship and prayer gatherings.  We'll sing, read scripture (primarily from John chapters 8 & 9), spend some moments in quiet thought and prayer, discuss what the Lord is saying to us, and pray for true hearts and honest lives.  More detail can be found at www.crossroadscokato.com.

Jesus said:

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life." - John 8:12

As the light of the world, Jesus reveals truth.  Jesus confronts us with truth in every area of our lives.  As Jesus says "Nothing is hidden that will not be disclosed, nor is anything secret that will not become known and come to light" (Luke 8:17).  The good news is that when we know Jesus and the truth of his great love for us, we can dare open our eyes to all the truth.  We do not need to hide anymore.

So, as you prepare for worship, pray and ask our Lord to reveal the truth.  Are there areas of your life that you are hiding?  Are there areas of truth that you will not deal with?  Is there any area of your life that you will not allow our Lord to penetrate?  Are you building a stronghold against Him?  In some ways do you prefer darkness? 

Living in darkness is no solution.  Much better to deal with truth.  So, come to Jesus!  Come to love!  Come to light!  Jesus loves you and it's wonderful to walk in the truth.  It's so good, so refreshing, so wonderful to be free!
