Expositor: Josef Urban / Text: John 1:9-11 / Series: The Gospel of John / Type: Sermon
Do you abide in darkness or do you walk in the light? The ‘true light’ is the real, genuine, authentic and ultimate self-revelation of God to man—the full & perfect revelation of God. Christ is the apex of redemptive history. To receive Him and His testimony is to receive the light. But our natural, fallen inclination will always be to reject the light. Sin corrupts the will and bends it toward a preference for the darkness. And that’s why no amount of external light alone will ever change our hearts. We need what Jonathon Edwards called, "A Divine & Supernatural Light, Immediately Imparted to the Soul by the Spirit of God.” We need the internal light of the new creation to shine in our hearts by the effective working of a supernatural work of the Spirit, to blast out the darkness of our inbred love for sin, and to open our eyes to see the saving truth of Christ.
