What is the writer saying?
As I read this passage I realized that Jesus makes so many powerful and important statements in His exchanges with the crowd. "Walk in the light while you have the light...believe in the light, so you may be sons of light."
There are two responses:
Believing God's truth opens our eyes to see more. It is like light shining into a room to give understanding.
Refusing to believe the light I have, darkens my insight and soon, "the one walking in darkness does not know where he is going."
Lord, You have displayed so many signs to the Jews (Lazarus brought to life from over 3 days dead (John 11), the donkey ride into Jerusalem (John 12:12-19) and more) yet they chose not to believe the obvious signs of The Messiah. I have a responsibility to believe what You have revealed to me about Yourself. Specific answers to prayer and clear revelation of Yourself to me in The Word. I have to recognize not everyone sees these things, but I am accountable to BELIEVE the truth about You that I see and it will open to more understanding of Your truth.
What are you trusting God to answer?
How has He assured you He's in control?
