Oman: men judged themselves

Friday, October 23, 2020
    Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.
    —John 3:20-21 (NIV)
    To judge aright we must judge as Christ judged. He judged no man, yet if He judged, His judgments were just... He proclaimed none worthless, none hopeless. Yet men were continually being judged by their relations to Him. The result was infallible, because men judged themselves. Those who loved the light came to Him, those who rejected Him showed that they desired to walk in darkness.
    ... John Oman (1860-1939), Vision and Authority, London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1928, p. 171 (see the book)
    See also John 3:19-21; Isa. 9:2; John 1:4-5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my heart loves and fears Your light.
