John continued and declared that the coming of the Only Son of God was not something philosophical but was someone that he and others saw. “We have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth,” John 1:14.
People’s hardness is not because the Bible is hard to understand. That is, God’s salvation revealed in the Bible is not something that can only be understood by the learned. He made it clear. Man’s refusal to receive the truth of the Bible is not due to its lack of clarity. It is due to man’s blindness and hard-heartedness.
Receiving the truth of God’s Word requires humility and eyes that only God gives. Those to whom God gives eyes to see humbly submit to what God has said knowing that He is God and we are not!
John wrote with clarity and unmistakable force that all men are not God’s children. In order to have the right to be called a child of God, He must cause an individual to see the truth.
As further proof, John said that he and his fellow Apostles witnessed the glory of God in the person of Jesus Christ. He said that Jesus is the one who was “full of grace and truth.” It is through faith alone in Christ alone that God adopts His children.
There is nothing that I or anyone can do to make you see the truth of life in Jesus. Even though He is life and light, men are naturally blind to the Kingdom.
God desires to be known. He makes Himself known to His people. His word is absolutely clear. No one is too far from God’s saving grace. If you are His rejoice. If you know some who don’t believe, pray that God will break into their lives and raise them from spiritual death.
