John 8:21-30


I Am the Light of the World


So Jesus said to them, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me. And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.” As he was saying these things, many believed in him. ~ John 8:28-30

The only way I see that we can please God and know what to say to those that do not believe in Him is for us to be obedient to God. When we are obedient, God is with us and we are never alone. When we are doing the things that please God, then others will take notice and come to know the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This is the only God, from whom salvation comes.

There will be no laughing in that moment, when death catches you up. And you realize the words of Jesus were true. And now there is no more opportunity for repentance and for faith.

Now, despite the passage of time, and despite the change of location, the heart of man reveals the same today. Man, by His nature, men and women by nature, are self reliant, and they mock at God, because deeply entrenched in the heart of every one of us, is our own good opinion of ourselves. The fact that we think we’re really pretty good. And anything that would confront us with the fact that we are bad, is something that we frankly do not choose to hear. We can handle the gospel of Jesus Christ, provided it comes to us in vague generalities in pious platitudes in the psychological culturing of our day, which says, I’m okay, you’re okay. And we’re just here to tell you that everybody’s okay. And everybody can enjoy that. And they can all go out with a smile on their face and feel that their job has been very well done. He preached a fairly good sermon, I feel okay at the end of it, and I’m ready for the rest of the week. But when the gospel cuts deep into the human heart, and reveals me to be what I am, then the scene is very different. When the chilling words of Jesus dawn upon a soul, what a difference that makes you he says, We’ll die in your sin. This morning, the jokes continue the snide remarks in the locker rooms of life. Our friends make little assertions as to the strangeness of our approach. They like to use little phrases like, Oh, I know Bill, he’s seen the light. Isn’t it so funny? He saw the light or there goes Mary, she’s one of those born again once haha, hey, there will be no laughing in that moment, when death catches you up. And you realize the words of Jesus were true. And now there is no more opportunity for repentance and for faith. This is no surprise to us that we should live in such an age. When Peter wrote in his second letter, this is what he said, You must understand that in the last days scoffers will come scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, where is this coming? He promised ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation. Now listen to this verse. But they deliberately forget. They deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word. The heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and with water but do not forget this. He says, The Day of the Lord will come just as promised.
