DARKNESS HAS NO POWER OVER US
One of the rich blessings God has given to us is that we are the children of the light and no longer walk in darkness. We have a great light. As a result of that light, our light should be shining constantly. Not a dim light, where others cannot see, but a light reflecting God’s light. We don’t want people to see us, but that they see the Christ that is in us. This matter of light is crucial to our everyday walk. As Children of Light, there ought to be evidence that we have been with Him and He with us. Jesus is the light of the World. I remember a church song, “Walk in the light, beautiful light, Jesus the light of the world.” Today’s scripture reference is Saint. John 12:46.
“I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark.”
Throughout this chapter, John writes about belief in Jesus. The Master speaks about trusting God who sent Jesus into the world. He does not speak on His authority, but on that of the Father. Trusting the Master is crucial to walking in this light. In chapter twelve, He speaks of how we will be judged if we fail to obey Him. At the same time, He came not to judge the world but to save it. We spend more time judging others, and should spend more time in the Light. I pray that your light is shining bight and that you are trusting God every step of the way and that He is truly the light of your life.
