The Eccentric Sheep Musings: Where The Light Is

The Eccentric Sheep Musings: Where The Light Is

When you shine a light into a bare corner, what happens?  It becomes lit up.  Darkness doesn’t remain there anymore.  There isn’t little specks of light unaccounted for by shadows amongst the light.  It is all light.  It was once all darkness, and now it is all light.

5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1) ” 

God is light.  God is with you and inside you.  That means you are light.  If you are light you cannot also be darkness.  If you are light that means darkness cannot stay.  Darkness and light cannot mix together.  It is one or the other.  When temptation rocks you and brings you to your knees, picture that corner being filled with light and all the darkness leaving.  It is the same with you, because darkness cannot stay where light remains.  You are filled with light right now because God is with you. 

5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5)”

“12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)”

Remember that as you confront the darkness today.  Darkness cannot be where light already resides.  Light is much more powerful than darkness.  God has chosen you to be light and to be a light within you to shine for all those around you. 

That kind of light is absolutely worth putting on a lampstand for the entire world to see.
