Step Into the Light

Light and darkness cannot coexist. Either there is total darkness without the presence of light, or there is light overtaking the darkness. 

Think about it. Your bedroom is pitch black because all lights are off. When you turn on a lamp or flip a light switch – instant light! The darkness can no longer remain when there is light. 

  
The Light (Jesus Christ) will always illuminate the darkness. Darkness can’t stand in the presence of the light. Demons flee and Satan trembles at the presence of God Almighty! All of hell thought they had this thing in the bag when Jesus was crucified and hung lifeless on the cross, BUT GOD had other plans!! 

For years I found myself wallowing in sin.  I had convinced myself that because no one knew about these dark places, I was fine and there would be no consequences.  The enemy is a pretty strategic guy, isn’t he?  

This double life we lead with perfectly placed masks leads to destruction.  It may not happen immediately but ultimately leads us into places we never intended on placing our feet.   

Our only hope is to allow the Light to illuminate the darkness in our lives.   

  

Matthew 6:24 says, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” 

Take out the word “money” and exchange it for whatever has gripped you and held you in bondage.

 

“You cannot serve both God and porn.”  
“You cannot serve both God and alcohol.
“You cannot not serve both God and fear.” 
“You cannot serve both God and darkness.

“You cannot serve both God and ________.”


God sent His only son, Jesus, so we could be rescued from our sin and walk in the light.  We are not left without hope!  

God foreknew our failure yet He preplanned a promise.  
And that promise is woven so beautifully throughout scripture.   The reality of redemption is so real and tangible, we must just grab hold of it!  

Fling open those spiritual shades in your life and let the Light come in to overcome the darkness. If you wallow in the darkness, it will overtake you. But if you allow the Light of Christ and the Word of God to illuminate those dark places, you will find unfathomable, unshakable hope!
