What is your hope ... are you living in darkness?

In John 9:39 Jesus says, "For judgment I have come into this world; that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind."

Not physical blindness, but spiritual blindness. When you come to Christ and accept and believe, becoming one of His, following in obedience to Him, you become open to God's word ... His veil is lifted. When you have "aha" moments, it is then you see, understand what God's word is saying, revealing to you.

On the other hand, there are those who think they have all the answers, but do not believe in Christ, do not accept Him as Messiah, who want nothing whatsoever to do with Him. They lack true understanding of what God's word says ... it is hidden from them, thus they are blind.

God desires all of humanity to come to Christ and see, witness the light He alone brings. Without Jesus, there is no eternal hope. No life everlasting. There is only hope for the moment. A hope that is here and gone.

What is your hope? Are you one of His or are you living in darkness?

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. He who believes in Him is not condemned (judged); but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation (judgment), that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed." (John 3: 16, 18-20)
