John speaks of two kinds of people in these verses - the believer and the unbeliever. The believer is naturally attracted to the light, whereas the unbeliever loves darkness and despises the light. The light symbolizes the Truth and perfect holiness of God, but darkness speaks of their opposites.

We are challenged to examine out hearts to see whether we do indeed love the light of God’s truth and holiness.
