DAY 30:LIGHT - The Chosen 40 Days with Jesus - "Free Will" - "Light or Darkness" ...

Good evening … Great is His faithfulness …


DAY 30: LIGHT

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved … He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God … And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds were evil” …

(John 3:17-19)


Jesus Christ came to save the world and not to CONDEMN IT … So, mankind has FREE WILL, Jesus said back in (v. 17), that the world MIGHT be saved, meaning we can most certainly reject His free gift, which is salvation being redeemed, and by our free will rejection we become condemned by our own rejection if we chose to reject the free gift …


- Nicodemus believed Jesus was from God – (v. 2), but he had weak faith, and he was afraid of his peers and that’s why he came to Jesus at night – (v. 2)- after their chat the faith of Nicodemus got stronger …


John 19:38-42

Talks about Joseph of Arimathea, and he was a hidden disciple, and he believed in Jesus, but made no public acknowledgment of faith – but he like Nicodemus showed their true belief and faith after the crucifixion of Christ …


1: What have you risked following Jesus, and what price of you paid???

Great question, sitting here at the church going over how to answer this … I don’t feel as if I have risked a lot as of now, but I been having this feeling that the Lord has huge role for me to play in the future … To keep this simple I’m not always welcomed because of my change and who I am in Christ now … I don’t have the same interest as I use to, I no longer worry about football well sports in general … Politics I find boring to discuss … Sometimes I don’t fit into the veteran community anymore, because of my new faith … Because of my new walk with Christ, I don’t have the same interest in music or movies either anymore, for me it’s all about doing the will of my Father in heaven and less about me own wills and passions … So, if I have paid a price the price is fine with me, because I’m better off in Christ than looking backwards, I want to be fit for the kingdom of Heaven …


2: In what ways is Christ like light??? In what ways are people asleep??? Christ is the light to all paths, and a lamp to our feet … He opens us all up to the truth we become enlighten through the new licenses He gives us to look through … The world through Jesus is better than without Him … People are asleep because they chose not to read the Bible and become enlighten … people enjoy living for their own passions and needs and wants they chose not to care for others … People now days live in echo chambers because of social media and devices like cell phones, echo chambers keep you asleep and brainwashed into the ways of the evil one …


3: What in your life and heart are you keeping in the dark, away from the sifting, transforming light of Jesus???


Right now, nothing is still in the dark for me, I share daily my struggles whether it’s on here with all of you or in private with the Lord … I also make regular visits to my priest for confession, and when I need it … I use the Lord the way King David used Him, all private at times having that closeness with our Creator in private is awesome, and sharing with all of you daily helps keeps me honest and accountable to the Lord …


Prayer Focus:

If there’s any part of your life where you’re either hiding your passion for Christ, or hiding something shameful, ask God to light it ...

PSALM 138 (139): Part of this evening’s Prayer Focus …


Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; 26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”
