That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. John 1:9
Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:19

It’s no secret… none of us like to be shown that we are wrong. Let me be more specific… I don’t like to be shown that I’m wrong.
But often I’m wrong. I sin. I have pride. I can be selfish and unloving. That is my condition as a human being. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
Jesus is called the Light in John 1:9. He is the truth. He exposes darkness. He shines into it and reveals what is really there. When I read the Bible, I see Him, and His light shines into my heart.
When the Light shines in my heart, I don’t like what I see. I don’t like the light to shine into my heart. It’s like the back room where you’ve stashed all your junk for years. “Let’s not go there! Don’t shine the light there!”
