John 3:19-21 (NIV)  This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

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.” 
We are all guilty of getting a high off doing something that is wrong. Maybe it’s staying out after curfew. We have all done things that aren’t right. But, that high doesn’t last long at all does it? Usually, we feel worse afterward than we did before the high. When we get a good look at ourselves we realize that we fall short of God’s glory. We do have a chance for redemption though! If we bring to light our sins by speaking them to God and asking for forgiveness then and only then can we be forgiven and to start living the life that God has meant for us. Then, we can do amazing things and when others are in aww, we can give God the glory he deserves by letting them know it was through him that we are successful!
