Don’t Be Afraid of the Light

Don’t Be Afraid of the Light

God is Light, and there is no darkness in Him at all [no, not in any way]. 

—1 John 1:5

The light of God exposes things (see John 3:20 and 1 Corinthians 4:5).When the light is turned on in a room, we can see the dirt and the bugs that begin to scurry. God is Light (see 1 John 1:5).When He gets involved in our lives, He begins to show us things we may prefer not to look at, things we have kept hidden, even from ourselves. We are frequently deceived, especially about ourselves. We prefer not to deal with our faults, nor do we delight in having them exposed. We may feel condemned about them, but at least we feel they are hidden. Anything hidden has power over us because we fear it may be found out. The best and most freeing thing we can do is face up to what God wants to expose and get beyond the fear of it.
