Scripture Focus: All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. – John 3:20 NLT
As I focus on this scripture, my heart breaks for those who are bound and determined to not let their sins come into the light. And who is the light? Yeshua (Jesus Christ), He is the Light.
So, I want to get some definitions of some of the words in the scripture:
Evil: morally wrong or bad; immoral; wicked – evil deeds; an evil life
Light: something that makes things visable or affords illumination; an illuminating object or source, as the sun, a lamp, or a beacon.
Sins: transgression of divine law; any act regarded as such a transgression, especially a willful or deliberate violation of some religious or moral principle.
Expose: to make known, disclose, or reveal (intentions, secrets, etc.); to reveal or unmask (a crime, fraud, impostor, etc.):
to expose a swindler.
(all definitions above are from Dictionary.com)
Everyone who is immoral and wicked resents the Light. The Light, Yeshua (Jesus Christ), He made our sins known because He took our sin upon Himself. He reveals who we truly are without Him. Our transgressions of God’s devine law separate us from His love, mercy and grace. And though, we try to hide our sins – God knows all about them. We can’t hide anything from Him.
“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes, and He is the One to whom we are accountable.” – Hebrews 4:13 NLT
Our salvation only comes through Yeshua – He is our only way to our heavenly Father. We don’t have to have it all together when we come to Him. We are to repent that is change our mind with reference to God – turning towards God.
Repent, therefore, and return—so your sins might be blotted out, so times of relief might come from the presence of Adonai and He might send Yeshua, the Messiah appointed for you. – Acts 3:19-20 TLV
So, repent – change your mind and turn to God.
