2 Peter: 1;19
And so the words of the prophets are made more certain; and it is well for you to give attention to them as to a light shining in a dark place, till the dawn comes and the morning star is seen in your hearts;
Have you ever had the electrical power go out in your area? We have due to all these bad thunderstorms we have been getting. It is not only inconvenient, it can cause some serious issues. Such as air conditioning, or refrigerator/freezer products. But the light, that is what we miss the most. When darkness starts to come, that light is something we really want in our homes.
Have you used a flashlight during these situations? You see how it spreads light out before you to a certain distance so you can see to walk where you are going?
This is what God's word does for us. It brings light into our situtation. It lights the path, and makes our way clearer to go. AMEN, AMEN!
A Christian should be drawn towards light everyday. We shouldn't want to walk in the despair of night, or the darkness of the soul. WE should be drawn to the light so we have peace. So we find our way. So we can be a light to others.
What if no one was a light in this world? What if Christians were suddenly taken out? What kind of light would be left?
So while you are here on this earth, fill yourself with the light of Christ, and let it shine upon all men so they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven. The word of God says we are called from darkness into light. Think about this... you can not be in both.
When you are in the light.. there is no darkness and when you are in the darkness there is no light. We either walk with God and let his light shine through us. Or we trudge along without him, with no light, and seemingly no hope. We really do make a choice everyday whether to walk in His light (word, prayer, strength, hope) or to reject it and try to make it on our own.
We go about our duties, our habits, with our friends, and falter along the way, blindly because we cannot see two minutes ahead, much less a day or two. But God can.
"He has the light."
For you at one time were dark, but now are light in the Lord: let your behaviour be that of children of light.
And this is the test by which men are judged: the light has come into the world and men have more love for the dark than for the light, because their acts are evil.
The light is hated by everyone whose acts are evil and he does not come to the light for fear that his acts will be seen.
But he whose life is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his acts have been done by the help of God.
