Acts 13:47 For so the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, That you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth’.
God has given every child of God a responsibility to be the light of the world. Every one of us like only light, because it illuminates in our hearts, it brings power and it destroys darkness.
Genesis 1:18 ‘And to rule over the day over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that is was good.’
Even darkness was created by God and God saw it was good. When God created darkness it was pure. We fear darkness because we stumble in darkness and we have no control of ourselves. Darkness will take us to many directions.
1 John 1:5-7 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses from all sin.
God is light and in Him three is no darkness at all and that is why we fear over darkness. The devil has sown the seeds of impurity and sin. God is light and if you have fellowship with light there will not be any darkness in you.
You should not do things that darkness allow you to do, you will not see, you will stumble, you will fall and be blinded totally. Darkness is bad because you cannot see.
When you are in darkness, no body sees you but still, God can see you.
1 John 2:9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.
When you hate your brother, darkness is allowed inside you. If you have fellowship with the darkness it will destroy the light inside you.
Exodus 40:38 For the cloud of the Lord was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
God will stand for you as a pillar of light. It may be day or night; a child of God is a child of God day or night. Be transparent in your doings day and night; be transparent in the work place; be transparent in your home and in your church. Don’t allow darkness to overcome you in the work place, home and outside in the world. Overcome the darkness of internet. Don’t allow darkness in family life. Light should illuminate not from the outside but from the inside of your heart.
2 Samuel 22:29 For You are my lamp, O Lord; The Lord shall enlighten my darkness.
You will see light of God in the darkness. Allow God to illuminate inside you. You will be the light to the dark world.
Psalm 19:8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
When your eyes are enlightened you will see the evils of darkness. Don’t hate darkness; but ask God to enlighten your eyes. Works of darkness will carry you to sin.
The Lord is your light and your salvation. You will inherit the salvation that the light brings. That will break the bondage of darkness.
Isaiah 2:5 O house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of the Lord.
Let us walk in the light. In darkness, you won’t have focus, no idea and no way to turn. Allow God to enlighten your life. Day or night, be a believer. No impurity or sin should enter your life.
Allow light in every area of life. Walk in the light of the Lord. You have the responsibility to be the light of the world. Don’t allow darkness in your life. Have fellowship with the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit and you will have light illuminating your body, mind and soul. Amen.
