Light of the World

“The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” -Psalm 119:130

God’s Word illuminates dark roads. He gives us spiritual vision to see the truest reality- the unseen spiritual realm. By His law even fools can know their sinful state, requiring their need for a Savior. Scripture reveals the darkest places in our hearts. This is a mercy, as godly sorrow leads to repentance and restored fellowship with the One who loves us best. What would the world be like without a sun or the Son? Always grasping through pitch blackness, without hope, without comfort or purpose. Some live this way. It should move every Christian with pity and compassion to see a blind soul, a dead spirit walking aimlessly through this earthly portal.

Christians must pray for the lost, asking God to give them eyes of faith, a heart to understand His simple but glorious truth. The basic message of the Gospel is able to penetrate the understanding of a child. The simplicity of the Good News is purposefully done so it may reach the farthest corners of the world to every nation, tongue and tribe. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). Through Christ we truly see for the first time. Glory to God for such mercy and freedom from sin’s bondage when we are finally shown The Way through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Grace upon grace,

April
