"He that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God"
It is easier to Walk in a Lie, than to Stand in the Truth.
People often want to hear what makes them happy and being lied to and lying to someone can and often does make them happy.
Jesus was not about making people happy, though some today teach a Jesus that is sweeter and more loving than Santa Clause Christmas Morning.
No, Jesus has a tendency of confornting people with the Truth of where they were at, then the person being confronted having to make a choice one way or another.
There is no compromise with Jesus.
There is no wishy washy sudsy fuzzy was a bear with the Son of God.
Jesus said, I am the Way. I am the Truth. I am the Light.
Men love darkness more than the Light because in darkness it often feels like you are getting away with things you would not dream of doing in broad daylight.
So when the Lights are on, people look good, but when the lights go out, WATCH OUT!
What you do when people are watching you or it is obvious to everyone is never a real indicator of who you; but it does show people who you want to be.
It is never who you really are.
YOU are the REAL YOU in the darkenss and the light.
When you find out who you really are.....
And often this is a very dissapoiting experience.
Come to the Light of Day to find mercy and grace because if you try to hide who you really are.
The Truth will find you out.
Besides Jesus already knew you in the Darkness,
He's trying to lead you into the Light.
