Bring in the Light

Too often, we stroll through without a care in the world, consumed with self and blind to the dangers of darkness. Many fail to recognize the urgency of being rescued from the dark. But God, because of His great love for us, relentlessly pursues us, especially when we are in the dark. Because of Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross, He is willing and ready to sweep us up into His arms and rescue us from certain destruction (2 Timothy 1:9-10). For, while we were still know-it-alls, laughing at the dangers of life and living for the moment, Christ died for us.

He did not wait for us to realize we were running into traffic. He did not wait for us to slow down, pull it all together and fix our lives. He gave His life regardless of the fact that we are sinners. He did this so we could believe in Him and be brought into the light. Jesus is the image of the invisible God (v.15). In Him, there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5). The soul asleep in deepest gloom is changed from night to day when Jesus walks into the room and pushes away the dark, filling it with light.

Reflect:

  • What is one area of your life that is full of Jesus’s light? How did it get this way?
  • Is there an attitude or habit you keep hidden in the dark? If so, what is one way you can bring it to the light?
  • Ask God to help you live freely in His light. Give Him complete control.
