John|3:19-21 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
>Have you ever noticed that if your open and honest... some people get very nervous about you? Christians are a people used to being honest with their faults. Confession and forgiveness are the desire of the sons of God. Sons of God do not want to sin. Still, this could be a radical departure from some people's way of living.... Being honest is a "threat" to their "belief" system.
>Rather than "take advantage" of a sinner in this condition, I believe compassion is God's fatherly response. People need help rather than tin gods. All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. Even while we were yet sinners, God loved the World a lot. Jesus is the way, Jesus is the answer. Light reproves... Jesus paid the price.
>Blessed be the name of the Lord! Father thank you for Jesus.
Lord, help us to be quick to share the Good News of Jesus Christ; and bless the hearers with a faithful ear. Thank you Father, In Christ Amen!
Luke 8:15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
