When darkness is penetrated with light things around us are plain to see.
Playing a game of basketball or volleyball in a poorly-lit gym is both difficult and dangerous. Bright and penetrating lights are a must in order to keep the players safe, for the coach to see what is going on and for the fans to enjoy the game.
In the book of John we find this passage challenging us to remain in the light…
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. John 3:19-21 NIV
As Christ followers we have been called into the light of Christ. His light of truth fully-exposes our dimly-lit deeds. Our true motives are uncovered and our relationship with God the Father is revealed. To be in relationship with God through Christ we must respond to His call out of our darkness.
"God in His mercy calls us out of our darkness and invites us to follow Him in the light." Mart DeHaan
PRAYER: I step into your light, dear Father. Let every corner of my life be brightly lit so darkness can be overcome. May the light of your presence reveal my darkness. I submit myself to you. In Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen.
