But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God. John 3:21 NABRE
The decision for faith or unbelief is not simply an intellectual matter, it has a moral dimension as well. We are attached to things that bring in an evil aspect, we need to break off from our evil ways and come into the light of truth, and of course our reluctance comes from our attachments to things that bring immediate pleasure rather than long term good. We hesitate to embrace the truth because it means having to give up all our sinful behaviors. Living the truth we come to the light, who is Christ. Coming to Christ in faith requires we turn away from sin and embrace a life marked by love, caring, and sharing in imitation of Jesus. If we are animated and empowered by God’s own action, the divine light ultimately reveals the true character of our lives. Of course our true character can only be seen in God. We are the image of God and only represent the truth when we are doing the good that is God in us. We first consent, then live truth, God’s action in us shows through and the work that is done by us is God in us. We need much more than lukewarm faith, we must truly be committed to love of others.
All good is God, and if we are doing good we are showing God. It is through God’s presence that we become the light and truth of Christ that others will see. Be the Light and reflect Christ.
