The true Light

John 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God

God sent His light into the world in the form of His Son, Jesus Christ.  Jesus was the radiance of the glory of God, the exact imprint of His nature (Hebrews 1:3), and yet when He ministered here on earth people rejected Him.  Even though He had existed since before time (John 1:1) and created the world (Hebrews 1:2), the people didn’t see Him for what He was and many made the wrong choice by not following the true Light.  They chose darkness.

You and I are given the same choice today – to receive the light, Jesus, or to reject Him.  To those who receive Him, that is not only to believe in His existence but to believe that He brings life through salvation by His death and resurrection, God promises the right to become His own children.

He will bring you into His family if you believe that God became a man and lived a perfect, sinless life, one you and I could never live, and that Jesus died to take the penalty for our sins and He raised back to life so that we can have life.  Do you believe this?  Have you chosen the Light over the darkness?  Now’s your chance.
