Life and Light.
St. John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Where darkness is prominent vices are never found wanting. Chaos is the order where darkness rules. Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
For everyone who has not received Christ death is inevitable. The death here is in two; the person is a living dead because the life of Christ is not in Him, the person faces eternal damnation which is hell, the second death.
Genesis 1 verse 3 reveals that the first thing God called for was light. A man cannot be productive where there is no light. The only ones who are productive in the dark are vicious people. The rapist, hemp smokers, thieves and many others take advantage of darkness to carry out their evil plans.
According to our anchor scripture, the life was the light of men. If you have the life of Christ you definitely have the light and you are the light. St. Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Light doesn’t struggle with darkness to shine. It’s the darkness that gives way for light to shine. Those who were first called Christians were just doing their thing and people called them Christians because of their way of living (Acts 11:26). This was as a result of the constant relationship built with Christ. The wonderful thing is that most of them never knew Christ when He was on earth but they sought the scriptures and studied to become Christ like.
You become the light by constant relationship with the light. We go to school to study a course that helps us become who we aspire to be.
The study of the light helps you to become the light not the study of darkness. You can study to know about darkness to know how to deal with them but much concentration should be given to the light that you want to become.
Jesus was never scared of casting demons out. He was always praying for the sick and delivering people. This is how you can shine as the light.
Talk to someone about Christ today, pray for them and you will be amazed at what the Holy Spirit will do through you.
Muse: The dark kingdom is scared of you as the Light.
Let us pray: Father, help me not to disappoint you by not shinning the Light.
