What does light have to do with darkness?

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2

Even a dim light looks bright in the dark.

Darkness is the absence of light, and many of us have our dark seasons. We all  experience gloom, lack, depression, ignorance, etc. The light represents the purity of God, His wisdom and glory. Darkness represents the works of the devil, and of the flesh where the workers of iniquity hide.

Jesus Christ is the light of the world, and if we walk with Him: we will never walk in darkness. The church, or the people that make up the church, are the light of this world. We have been translated from the kingdom of darkness, to the kingdom of light. Jesus and Paul were the light to those who were in the dark. We all need to see a light at the end of the tunnel, and that light is salvation which comes from the Lord Jesus, our Savior.

Jesus hung out with sinners, and Paul said that he would become whatever he needed to become in order to win souls. In 2 Corinthians Paul exhorts the church, saying do not be yoked with unbelievers meaning: don’t tie your life up, don’t team up, don’t partner up with unbelievers. But we who are of the light, should share that light with other people. 

Let’s pray: 

Father God, we thank you for opening our eyes and drawing our hearts to your light. I pray we can be filled with love and hope, may we share your light with others. I pray our lights would continue to grow, even as this world grows darker. Prepare the hearts of those who are assigned to us, and let them desire to walk in the light so that they may not stumble. In Jesus name, Amen.
