I am not judged by the light I have, but by the light I have refused to accept!

19-21“This is the crisis we’re in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God. Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won’t come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is.” John 3:19/21 (The Message)

I am not judged by the light I have, but by the light I have refused to accept.  There is no one who cannot have the knowledge, perfectly clear obtainable, of the standard of Jesus Christ.

Whether I am a Christian or not – or whether I am good or not – is not the question; it is whether I have refused the light of the finest moral character who ever lived, Jesus Christ!

THIS is the condemnation, that the Light, Jesus Christ, has come into the world, and I PREFER darkness – my own point of view!

The characteristic of one who begins to walk in the light is that he drags himself into the light all the time.  He does not make excuses for things done in the dark!  He brings everything into the light, and says, “this is to be condemned; this does not belong to Jesus Christ,” and so we walk in the light …

“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light …” (1 John 1:7); that is don’t have anything folded up, don’t juggle things, don’t pretend you have not done anything shady.  John says, if you have committed sin, confess it; walk in the light, and you will have fellowship with everyone else who is there.

Natural affinity does not count here at all.  Watch how God has altered your affinities since you were filled with the Spirit; you have fellowship with people you have no natural affinity for at all; you have fellowship with everybody who is in the light.

Light is the description of clear, beautiful, moral character from God’s standpoint, and if we walk in the light, “the blood of Jesus Christ His son, cleanses us from all sin”, God Almighty can find nothing to censure!
