Everyone has choices. The most important decision anyone can ever make is whether or not they will choose to follow the Lord or to follow the world. This was made so plain and clear to me recently, during a small group meeting as we discussed John chapter 3. What do we all think of when that reference is mentioned? Easily one of the most popular Bible verses. John 3:16. But just past that, the text reveals something that struck me so clearly.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.
