Jesus said, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the One who sent me. I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”
– John 12:44,46
If we do not believe in the Son, then we do not believe in the Father who sent Him. A true Christian believes in Christ, acknowledges Him as the Son of God, trusts totally in Him, gladly accepts His Word, and obeys His teachings and His commands.
Christ is the Light of the world, and through His glorious resurrection the darkness was dispersed. However, it is only those who gladly allow Christ to open their eyes who receive the life-giving rays of His glorious light.
When we believe in Christ and call upon Him in faith, that is when we will begin to see and to understand the Truth.
“…I am not attempting, O Lord, to penetrate Your loftiness, for I cannot begin to match my understanding with it, but I desire in some measure to understand Your truth, which my heart believes and loves. For I do not seek to understand in order that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this too I believe, that unless I believe, I shall not understand.” – St. Anselm of Canterbury
I believe in You, my Lord, You know I believe.
Lord, open the eyes of my heart and fill me with Your Spirit
that I may see and live in the light of Your truth.
Lord, come and take over my intellect,
that I may understand, embrace, obey and rejoice in Your truth.
