Topic: THE LIGHT IN THE DARK
Text: John 1:4,5
4: In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Let me take just two meanings of darkness:
1, Stemming from evil characteristics of forces: wicked or dishonourable.
2, Absence of moral or spiritual values.
The definitions above will help you to understand what the bible refers to as darkness. It refers to evil around a man’s life. When you go through things that are aimed at bringing you down or destroying you it is obvious that they are from the kingdom of darkness.
Verse 4 started by telling us that Jesus is the light of men, when you know that there is darkness in and around your life, it is absolutely important you get the light on, through Jesus.
Let me come out this way: when your compound is dark you want to move into your apartment where you have light, now listen to this:
in him was life means if you couldn’t find light anywhere and everywhere you have gone as you come to Jesus you will find light.
The word ‘ in ‘ gives it appropriate meaning, when you write it this way ‘ inside ‘, inside Jesus is light, as you stay with him you will continually get light.
John 15:4 will help us here:
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
Abiding in Jesus, brings continuous lighting, your light will be out if you don’t stay with Jesus. Staying with Jesus is getting your light on always, staying without Jesus is synonymous to leaving your apartment in the middle of the night into a thick dark night, anything dangerous can happen.
Abiding with Jesus means spending time with him, this is not just that you have given your life to Christ , you must continually stay in his presence, worship him, study his words, pray to him and sometimes fast to seek his face on the issues of life.
Staying with Jesus is all that guarantees walking on a bright path in this dark world. As his light continues to shine in our lives, victory, breakthrough, success, lifting, prosperity are guaranteed. Sound health replaces sicknesses and diseases, honour and dignity replace humhumiliat and disgrace.
It is another waiting day, a day to fast and pray, seek his face about issues around your life, and you can be sure that his bright light will shine. God bless you.
* Present issues that bother you to God as we wait upon him today.
