When Jesus opened the door, a Light shined in the darkness. That prophesy in scripture was fulfilled, so why not believe the prophecy of Jesus coming back where He obliterates darkness in its entirety! Soon, Light will be the only existence. We must choose our side wisely… darkness or Light!
A wise man, Martin Luther King JR., stated this, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only LIGHT can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only LOVE can do that.” -M.L.K JR.
We must abide by the same love that Christ showed to us individually to everyone else. We are called to be imitators of Christ. We are not Christ, but we are to testify according to Him. Evil is prevalent, but Good will Conquer it once and for all! Until then, we must live according to Romans 12 and Ephesians 4-5.
Romans 12:9-10,21 “9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love… 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Love only exists in God. Without Him, no love exists. We are darkness, but He chooses to shine His Light in us. We are a mere reflection of Him. His love is what conquers evil. Our response to evil cannot be with evil; it only adds to it. Now, in this evil prevalent world, shine the Light in you. Silence is not the solution. Love is the answer. Love requires vulnerability, putting your-self out there to be hurt by the world, just like our Savior. You will get hurt, but you are attached to an everlasting vine that is unbreakable!
You can’t claim to love God if you don’t love people. Loving God is to love people! We are to reflect or imitate the same patient, merciful, and gracious love that was shown to us! Too many Christians nowadays have created this theology that they can love God and keep to themselves; that they can go on with their own life and not care for anyone else. They have a created a selfish Gospel, but, in reality, the Gospel is selfless! Do not misinterpret me; the Gospel is personal, but it is selfless! People share what they are excited about. If we are truly excited and believe the transformation God did in us, then we will boast about our weaknesses and proclaim His goodness to everyone!
Awake, sleeper! Shine the Light! Go out and Love! Be a light in a dark world because the dark world will son be gone and only Light endures!
