In John chapter 8, verse 12, Jesus tells us, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
I always love the allusions to Christ as light in the Bible, since I interacted with Christ as the consciousness of the Sun over several years while using a legal substance. I experienced his beautiful healing light many times, and he would wrap me in it and give me a sense of peace and calm that I had never had, and envelop me in a depth of unconditional love that it is hard to put into words.
But he makes clear in these verses that we must follow him to receive this light, the light of his Salvation. I was thinking about this the other day because I was thinking about growing up in the church and how we were urged to accept Christ as our Savior, and it was only after my experiences interacting with Christ and God that I began to understand what this means.
Christ wants us to repent of our transgressions against ourselves and others and to submit to his spiritual authority by asking forgiveness of all of these sins, but I think there is more to accepting Christ than this. He commands us to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to love God with all of our hearts. He talks about avoiding materialism and greed, and giving of ourselves to help the less fortunate.
I know that Christ purifies the stains of our sins from our spiritual consciousness, or our souls, when we ask him to forgive us of them, because I saw him do this to my own soul one time. But I think when we accept Christ, it means we accept all of Christ; all of his teachings, all of his commands, all of his values. We really have to abandon our old way of being and try our best to live and behave as Christ would to the best of our ability. I think this is what accepting Christ really means. It is a turning point in our lives, when we make a decision to live a life of obedience to Christ, and to do our best to emulate his sacred nature.
