Back to Basics – Light & Dark

You don't have to fear the dark or the unknown...

 

by Pastor TJ Freeman - July 28, 2015

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”

And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

Have you ever been in a room so dark you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face?

Children — and many adults — often admit that they are afraid of the dark.

But, is it really the darkness they are afraid of? No.

The real source of the fear is not the darkness, but the unknown.

You may not be afraid of the dark, but I’ll bet you can relate to the anxiety associated with the unknown.

What if I lose my job?

What if I can’t pay my bills?

What if I develop a disease?

What if a loved one is hurt?

What if I’m not accepted?

In a world where pain and hardship are real, anxiety about the unknown is understandable.

But, what if I told you that there was a light shining into that darkness?

The passage I opened with is found in the 1st chapter of the book of John — and it’s there we learn that Jesus, the Son of God, is the light that shines into the darkness.

Friend, if you are in Christ, you have no reason to fear! You can trust Him who has overcome the darkness.

If you’ve not placed your faith in Christ alone for the forgiveness of your sins, you’re still living in darkness. Unless something changes you’ll spend an eternity separated from God in total, terrifying darkness.

Take some time today to read God’s Word — you can begin where I did in the book of John — and ask God to help you turn from the darkness — so that you too may walk in the light of Christ for all eternity.
