“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can.”
From when God said, “Let there be light!” there was never again a moment in existence, when anyone would have to be stuck in the dark. The fact that we sometimes feel that our world is plunged in darkness, doesn’t mean that light doesn’t exist. It simply means that we need to let our lights shine brighter. And if we don’t have a light to shine, then it’s time to call on the One who is Light – Jesus Christ.
For us to make a campfire, we need to take action. A pile of wood doesn’t spontaneously combust. It needs enough effort to cause enough friction so that a spark appears. That spark is what will eventually light a fire that will drown out the darkness. Going to the One who is our source of light, will lead to friction with the Enemy. And he will try every lie in the book to keep you in the darkness, but do it anyway.
Lighting that fire inside of us with God’s presence, will not only lead to an eternal life for us, but will also light the way for others to the foot of the cross. You see, we are called to be light in this world. And we cannot be light without knowing God and His light. We are told to fishers of men. But we cannot do that, if the light of God isn’t shining through us, into a dark world. The less you and I choose to shine our lights… the darker the world will be.
So, instead of complaining about the dark state of the world, why don’t we begin to do something about it. It starts with you and me. It starts right here and right now. It starts by shining the Light of Jesus Christ through our lives, so that those around us will know the way to the cross.
Be lit and have an amazing day!
