“I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not Remain in Darkness.” John 12:46 (NASB)
The promise we find today in our verse is straightforward. Each person has the opportunity to believe in the Light – that is Jesus Christ. He has come so that we do not have to remain in darkness. These words were spoken by Jesus to explain what a difference it makes when we believe in Him. We all need that Light that Jesus brings us to when He makes us part of His family. We begin to see things more clearly and see things we have never seen before. As we continue to trust in Jesus, God continues to open our eyes to understand more and more which He desires us to know. The other side of this promise is pretty sad and daunting because those who choose to not believe remain in darkness where they are unable to see. We all begin in that darkness but Jesus has provided a way out of it and into the Light for all who chose to believe.
