I Peter 2:9 ” But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him Who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.”

It tells us here that we have been called out of darkness…but it’s our choice whether we do or not. And that’s where the real struggle begins…the battle between light & darkness, faith & unbelief, good & evil. John 3:19 tells us that, “Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.” We reject Jesus because His light exposes our sinful ways…and we don’t like that. If we read Ezekiel 8:1-18 we can see how darkness had permeated Jerusalem…from very public to very secretive idolatry within the Temple walls itself…all of the people thinking God couldn’t see them or their evil deeds…but that was far from the truth, “For God Who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness.’ Made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” (II Corinthians 4:6) The truth of His light is shining like a high powered beacon, directed at our stubborn hearts…but the choice still remains ours to cross over from darkness to light.
