Life can be narrowed down to two basic choices and these choices determine the quality of our lives, the direction of our lives and the end of our lives. The two choices are that we can either go towards the light or we can go towards the darkness. If we go towards the light then we will receive more light and will eventually reflect the light to others.
John 8:12 Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
In Christ alone is life and His life is the Light of men.
John 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
When we receive Christ then we receive the life and we receive the light.
John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,
Jesus Christ is the light that gives light to everyone who receives Him and He enlightens every man.
John 1:9 There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.
You can come to the light through believing in Jesus Christ or you can remain in darkness. The choice is yours.
John 12:46 I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.
If you choose to remain in darkness then your “world” will become darker and darker and you will not be able to see life clearly. You will live in a state of confusion and will stumble through life without peace.
I Corinthians 14:33a for God is not a God of confusion but of peace,
The reason why people do not come to the Light is because they want to go their own way and do what they want to do. The end is frustration, defeat and death.
John 3:19,20 This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the 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.
After death, those who chose darkness with receive judgment for the choices of sin they made. They could have chosen light and life but they chose darkness, judgment and eternal torment and death.
Hebrews 9:27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,
Those who chose the light and the life of Jesus Christ will see Jesus when He appears a second time for salvation without a reference to sin to those who eagerly await Him. They chose to turn from darkness to the light and received light, life and eternal salvation and life.
Hebrews 9:28 so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
