“God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
I used to live by a body of water that ran east to west. It was the boat launch, in Morehead City, NC. I would go there to pray, I was there many early mornings or at dusk.
I began to recognize the line of light or darkness move across the water. Gradually lighter or darker but progrssive lines of demarcation. As I looked up you could see it in the clouds also.
I mention this because the light or darkness within us is just as visible. People can see whether we walk in the light. For example, the world without Christ.
King James Version (KJV)
“The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.”
Most of the world is in that condition. There is no Judgement for their sin, they do not travel on a straight path, there is no truth in them. They know no peace, they don’t believe there is any.
Their ways are desolate, they are DEAD MEN WALKING. . .
This is not The Lords plan. He would have all come to the light, He sent His Son, not to condemn the world, but that through Him the world might be saved. Those who have paid attention and opened their hearts have recognized and excepted the light.
King James Version (KJV)
“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.”
“O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.”
Those who find the light, are blessed beyond measure. We all walked in darkness but now in the light. Let your light so shine, that God is Glorified, Exalted, Lifted Up, Praised.
Our lives should draw others to the Lord. If we walk in the light, we will.
“Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.”
Jesus, the LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
“For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:”
1 John 1:7
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
Thank You Lord, may Your light shine through me.
