Light & Darkness
Dr. David Jeremiah
Sunlight on Our Path
If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 1 John 1:6
Critics use the word dark to describe movies, television shows, comic books, songs, and other forms of entertainment that are troubling, evil, or depressive. In the same way, we sometimes say about someone, “He’s in a dark place right now.” That’s biblical terminology; the apostle John frequently spoke of light and darkness. The entire world—apart from God’s people—is in darkness, groping for direction and hope. But the followers of Christ have sunlight streaming onto their paths and have no need for night vision goggles.
Please read, 1 John 1
If there’s a dark spot somewhere in your heart or habits, confess it to God and ask Him to bleach it from your system. When we get to heaven, we’ll be sinless, spotless, and blameless in all our ways. Until then, we work each day to stay on the pathway of light. The Bible says, “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18).
If God had wanted us completely out of the world, He could have taken us home to heaven at the time of our spiritual birth….We are to shine as light in the world system’s darkness.
