Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

“While you have the light, believing the light, that you may become sons (daughters) of light.”
These things Jesus spoke, and departed, and was hidden from them. John 12:36
Speaking to His followers, Jesus invited them to believe in the light, to believe in Him. As they believed in the light, the qualities, characteristics and nature of the light would become evident in their lives.
Followers of Jesus, however, occasionally complicate the concept of following Jesus. We love to splice theology and argue doctrine. When we do, we lose sight of the simple need to become more like Jesus. Said another way, it is easy to spend time discussing, debating, and writing about Christian beliefs, all the while neglecting Christian behavior.
Being a Christian is about doing something. Let me clarify: salvation is not about our doing anything; our salvation comes through God’s grace alone, by faith alone, in Christ alone. We can do nothing to earn salvation. The doing that I am talking about is living as “sons (daughters) of light.
As we follow Jesus, we should become more like Him. Remember, non-believers found Jesus winsome and attractive. Sinners actually liked being around Jesus! So if we are serious about reaching our unbelieving culture, becoming more like Jesus should be our primary goal. When we are more like our Savior, those who are far from Jesus will find themselves wanting to be near us. When they do draw near, we have the opportunity to shine God’s light of truth and love into their dark world.
Lord, thank you for sending “Sons (daughters) of light” into our lives so we may know you. Now send us, use us to bring others into your eternal family.
