LIVING IN THE WORLD AS LIGHT FOR THE WORLD
In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:4-5 ESV)
We are either living in the light are we are living in darkness. The life that we live today reflect the light that shines within us, which telegraphs to the world the condition of our spirit. It will say that our spirit is either good or it is evil. For those people who hate the light are those who want to sin in the darkness. Evil deeds are revealed by the light, so people who want to do evil must do it in the dark so they cannot be exposed and caught in the act.
Light means understanding and moral insight, spiritual vision. But more than just shinning or reflecting, the light of Jesus penetrates and enlightens our hearts and minds. Everyone who comes into contact with Christ can be enlightened. When Christ’s light shines, we see our sin and his glory, Therefore, we can refuse to see the light and remain in darkness. But whoever responds will be enlightened by Christ. He will fill our minds with God’s thoughts. He will guide our path, give us God’s perspective, and drive out the darkness of sin.
Now as you read and listen to the truth, know that the timeless light has invaded our time, and we can see it in our darkness. As the light shines, it drives away the darkness, for the unsaved world is blinded by the prince of this world. Christ’s light shined to a hardened, darkened humanity and he continues to shine. But the darkness can never extinguish it. This statement indicates the struggle between the darkness and the light. Unregenerate humanity under the influence of Satan, the prince of darkness, has not accepted the light and even resists the light. Thus, “darkness” indicated ignorance and sin, active rejection of God’s will. Those in darkness reject Christ, his light, and his followers. But no matter how deep the darkness, even a small light can drive it back. The power of Christ’s light overcomes any darkness in the world.
Therefore, brothers and sisters we encourage you to live in the light as the light that shines and reflects your true spirit that will help bring salvation to the world. We leave you with our peace that you will become a disciple of Jesus and carry his message into darkness of this world. I remain your brother in Jesus Christ, Pastor Davis/Master Teacher!
