— John 3:20-21
What’s the power behind your life? One straightforward way to find out is to come to Jesus and ask him to search you and reveal anything spiritually unhealthy or unholy in you. Opening ourselves up to the truth of his Light gives us a remarkable awareness about who we are and a freedom to live for our Lord without fear because he is our Light and knows our motives. We don’t have anything to hide. We want God to search us and see us in his light so that we can share that light with others freely. Then, we can confidently know that God will do remarkable things in us and through us because there are no distorted motives or hidden agendas.
Thank you, God, for shining your light into my heart through your Son, the Light of the world. Please gently reveal to me the areas of my weakness, sinfulness, duplicity, and deception. I want to live purely before you and purely for you. I humbly request this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
