II Corinthians 4:6 ” For God, Who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.”

As I John 1:5 states, “God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.”  When we walk from darkness into the light of Christ, we are transformed…and we become enlightened.  Gone is our old self, for now we can understand the light and truth of the Gospel.  No longer to be trapped in the darkness, this new knowledge of God now resides in our heart…and the glory of God shines forth as there becomes less of us and more of Jesus in our life.

John 3:19 ” This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.”

In this verse Jesus so wisely observed the world’s value system both then and now.  For what we treat as precious and dear, are what we value.  Are they things of virtue and truth, or things of  sin and wickedness?  Jesus came into the world to shed illumination on our spiritual darkness…that we love evil rather than good and falsehood rather than speaking the truth.(Psalm 52:3)   He declared in John 7:7, ” The world hates Me because I testify that what it does is evil.”  Pray that the spiritual darkness that is enveloping the world may be lifted and banished as we seek the light.

Job 24: 13 ” There are those who rebel against the light, who do not know Its ways or stay in Its path.”

The light of Jesus has come into the world…but men love darkness, (John 3:19-20).  They resist God, not recognizing or acknowledging His majesty and the gift of salvation He offers.  He calls all of us to be children of light…for the fruit of light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth. (Eph. 5:8-14).
