Light of the World

He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.  
John 1:10-11 NKJV

“And this is the condemnation, 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. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
John 3:19-21 NKJV

I have heard many people say “if God would reveal Himself, I would believe.” If this is you, I would like to ask you this: “would you really believe, or are you just using this as an excuse?” Please consider this: God did come to earth and revealed Himself, yet many still did not believe. They denied Him, yet the proof was right before their eyes. God has also revealed Himself to you. Please consider these passages.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Rom 1:18-21 NKJV

Before I was saved I did not want to come to the Light because I loved my sin. I tried the best as I could to make God go away. But now I am so thankful Jesus did not give up on me and sent people into my life to tell me of Him.

  1. Thank you Ken for sharing the truth again. God bless you.

  2. Oh how I love Jesus BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED ME! I love Pastor Mahesh Chavda's testimony, a former Hindu, of how he came to Jesus, because Jesus kept pursuing him. Thanks for another great post, Ken.

  3. You're right, God did reveal Himself to the world, and the world rejected Him. Jesus is light, and this dark world doesn't want to acknowledge the light.

  4. Thank you Ken so very much for sharing another awesome post my brother and friend in Christ Jesus!!!

    Love in Christ Jesus,


  5. What about those that say 'I just want to be able to have fun now and I'll get serious about God later!' Don't they know that you can have FUN with God and His people? I think we're pretty fun anyway :-) Maybe I'm biased!

  6. Hello Ken, Yes God still reveals himself today and yet, many are too busy to see him. If they pray and see an answer they believe it is just coincidence???
    Jesus is the light, many who don't want him are night people, they don't desire to see the brightness of day. Their life is a closed book. So sad..because once you walk with him life is happier and brighter. God Bless Ken.

  7. Hi Ken -

    Thank you for this rich needed message. It is helpful to gain from truths that are expressed from our Lord's Words.

    Glad that our Lord got you for your reserved place in Him!

  8. Hi Ken. Wanted to stop by and let you know that I just awarded you the Versatile Blogger award. I love reading your posts!


  9. The longerI live my christian life the more open my eyes become to how many are rejecting Christ for the glitter of the world and are on the wide road to hell. So very sad.

  10. To be in the light of Christ is to understand the meaning of the words, "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me!"

    How sad it is that the enemy of God has blinded so many to accept the darkness!
