All Who Seek Christ Find Christ

<quote>

Everyone who sincerely seeks Christ finds Christ. Although He forces Himself on no one, He rejects no one. Rather, He freely pardons and sets us free from the sinful nature, peer pressure, and the deceitful power of the devil as we yield ourselves to His grace and righteousness. And Christ reveals Himself to every person through the things He has created and the testimony of those who walk in the Spirit. Christ leads, teaches, and corrects every person who follows Him. He interprets our observations and experiences and shows us the way. He’s the Source of every good thing including knowledge, understanding, wisdom, righteousness, and faith. What He says is the truth. Outside of Him, none of those are possible. For instance, the human mind can’t reason to any truth without Christ. Nor can we self-generate true righteousness without Christ.

If God Doesn’t Supply Truth

<quote>

It seemed that if God doesn’t supply the truth through some form of divine revelation, rational thought would be impossible. Without that truth, humans could only react to their natural senses as animals do. They could learn about how to react to those senses, but they couldn’t reason beyond what they could observe and test. And I noted that science that leads to technology is limited to what we can observe and test. If all of that is true, then all human reason that goes beyond what can be observed or what God has revealed would be irrational and unsound.

In Christ all Knowledge and Wisdom is Hidden

<quote>

Could it be that we can only find truth in Christ Jesus? If so, what does this do to theology, philosophy, and science? How does this affect the argument between presuppositional apologists and evidential apologists? What about logic, critical thinking, and decision-making?

Vapor

<quote>

Could it be that we base most of our thinking on made-up stuff? If so, our thoughts are pure vapor.

There’s an alternative. His name is Jesus Christ. He’s real and knowable. All who seek Him find Him. His sheep hear His voice. All who are on the side of truth listen to Him. He speaks through the Bible and every means of divine revelation mentioned in the Bible. We’re totally dependent on Him. Why then does the fleshly nature not want to yield to Him completely?

Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. ~ Romans 8:23

Our bodies have not yet been redeemed. We do groan within ourselves as we wait for that adoption, that redemption of our bodies.

The Spirit gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. ~ John 6:63

Rather than turn to the natural mind, we need to turn to Christ. And yet, we often try to depend on the arm of the flesh. We try to reason with a mind that has no path to true premises. What Jesus says is the truth . . . ALWAYS.

Everyone Benefits from the Light of Christ

<quote>

Every person benefits from the light of God [Jesus Christ]. Without that light, we would all be in the dark. Without that light, the human mind has no way to reason. Without the light of God, people can react to what’s around them but not in a rational way. The light gives them some reference point for what’s right and what’s true. In the light of Christ, they can somewhat tell the difference between reality, preconceptions, and imagination even if they haven’t yet accepted Christ as Savior and Lord.

Those who hate the light and love darkness turn from the light. When the children of light begin to shine, those who love darkness turn even further from the light. They try to suppress the light. When any person fails to acknowledge Christ or yield to His light, that person turns toward darkness. At a certain point, God lets that person go. God withdraws Himself and His light from them. This generally happens by degrees, but it can happen quite suddenly. They then enter a darkness in which they increasingly can’t tell the difference between right and wrong, good and evil, truth and lie, or reality and make-believe. We’re seeing the children of light and the children of darkness coming to maturity on a massive scale throughout society now. The war is between Christ and the spirit of antichrist.

The children of light are learning to hear the voice of Christ and to yield to His righteousness in willing submission and obedience. They’re learning to discern the body of Christ, and the love of God is being shed abroad in their hearts by the Holy Ghost.

The children of darkness are trying to smother the children of light. They hate the light. They seek power and control. They don’t want the word of the Lord. They seek to distort and twist the utterance of God. They ridicule. They oppress. They threaten. They love to listen to ungodly counselors and false teachers in the news media, the universities, the entertainment venues, and even in some churches.  They willingly allow themselves to be drawn into a downward spiral of slavery to alcohol, drugs, sexual compromises, perversions, disorder, and other sins. They gladly enter into the idolatry of focusing on things other than Christ and His righteousness. Some of them even think that they can destroy the body of Christ.

God will prevail. Though many followers of Christ are suffering from persecution and some have even given their lives, Christ will be victorious. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. God uses our suffering as part of His process to transform us. Refining gold always requires heat, and the dross must be removed. In the end, every scar will become a badge of honor.

The Light of the World

Have you ever wondered by Christ said that He is the Light of the world then later said to those who follow Him that they are the light of the world? This might help.

<quote>

Christ is the light of the world. When we listen to Christ’s voice, faith comes. Faith gives us access into His grace. When we yield to His grace so He says His words and does His works through us, we are also the light of the world. That is, Christ in us is the light of the world.
