KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
The Lord Jesus declared in our key scripture that He is the way. Men have always sort to find alternatives to the. Jesus way. Unfortunately all who refuse to accept this way only end up in misery.
In the book of Genesis 3:1-8, the devil came in the form of a serpent and told eve that if they were to eat the tree of knowledge of good and evil they would have their eyes opened knowing things as God. In this instant they forsook God’s way and the result was an awareness of their nakedness, fear that caused them to hide and an ultimate rejection from God’s garden to begin to fern for themselves. Men are presently groping in the dark.
The Lord Jesus is the way back into God’s light. Indeed He is the light of the world. John 8:12 “Then spoke Jesus again unto them saying I am the light of the world, He that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life”. This is amazing. Everyone who has made Jesus Lord of his or her life is no more in darkness. The Lord said He shall also have the light of life. He does not only abide in the light but He would also become light unto others. Matthew 5:14.
Light is solution and light brings vision. John 1:4, 5 also iterates that in Him was life, and that life was the light of men, and the light shines in darkness and darkness has never overpowered it. This is the dwelling place of all Christians, they are in the light. Light also means deliverance from evil. Light is liberation.
1st Peter 2:9 reminds us that we have been brought or rescued from darkness into His marvelous light. Jesus is the light and the way into this light.
Where are you dear reader? To be in darkness means to be ruled by sin, sicknesses and all forms of satanic oppression. Darkness is the power of Satan .If you are devoid of a peaceful mind, then you are in darkness. Why suffer in darkness when you can freely enjoy the liberty and privileges of God’s light. Come to Jesus.
Lord Jesus you came to bring us light and to make us light. I accept you into my life today. I receive your light into my life.
Acts 26:18″ To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:
