LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS




LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

Darkness cannot exist in the light.  When we walk into a dark room and switch on the light, darkness has to disappear.  Light is essential for life.  In a world where there is no light, life cannot exist. 

Plants cannot grow without the light from the sun.  Light is essential for our own body.  Sunlight can improve our mental health.  There are studies that show that, “Sunlight actually increase levels of a natural antidepressant in the brain.  On sunny days, the brain produces more of the mood-lifting chemical serotonin than on darker days.” Dr. Michael Murray (www.care2.com/greenliving/7-little-known-benefits-of-sunlight.html)

Natural light can also give us stronger bones because of vitamin D that we get from the sun.  This vitamin helps in the absorption of calcium.  It can help with faster healing.  There is research that shows that it can play a role in faster healing after injury or illness.  “People recovering from spinal surgery experienced less pain and stress and took fewer pain medications when they were exposed to natural light.  An older study showed that the view out the window (trees vs. a brick wall) helped recovery in the hospital,” reports the Harvard Health Letter (http://www.health.harvardedu/newsletters/Harvard_Health_Letter/2010/July/a-prescripton-for-better-health-go-alfresco?utm_source=mental&utm-medium=pressrelease&utm-campaign=health0710). These are a few of the benefits to our body and mind and emotions.  Ultra-violet light purifies by either killing or inactivating microorganisms.

Where did light originate?  God, the Creator of all is the light.  In Genesis 1:3, “And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.”   Let there be light is a translation of the Hebrew phrase “yehi ‘or”, which was translated in Latin as “flat lux”.  A literal translation would actually mean, “Light, exist.”   It is more of a command spoken by God.  (www.gotquestions.org/let-there-be-light.html)

There are many, many scriptures that speak about light. 
John 1:4 “In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.”
John 1:5, “And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it (put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it.)”
I Thess. 5:5, “For you are all sons of light and sons of the day; we do not belong either to the night or to the darkness.”
I John 1:7, “This man came to witness, that he might testify of the Light, that all men might believe in it (adhere to it, trust it, and rely upon it) through him.”
I John 1:5-7, “And this is the message (the message of promise) which we have heard from Him and now reporting to you: God is Light, and there is no darkness in Him at all (no, not in any Way.)  (So) if we say we are partakers together and enjoy fellowship with Him when we live and move and are walking about in darkness, we are (both) speaking falsely and do not live and practice the Truth (which the Gospel presents).  But if we (really) are living and walking in the Light, as He (Himself) is in the Light, we have (true, unbroken) fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt (keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations).”
Matthew 5:14-16, “You are the light of the world.  A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.  Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.”

God is light.  We are created in His image.  If He is light, then we are light.  We are a portion of Who He is.  Jesus is the manifestation of God on earth.  When one is lost in the darkness he reaches for a light to show the way.  Jesus shows us the way to the Father. 

Just like some insects are attracted to the light, so should we be attracted to the light of God.  We should not be ashamed to reflect His light within us.  God commanded the light to cover the earth.  He has covered the earth with His glory but the enemy works in darkness.  We need to dispel the darkness by our actions and through who we are in Christ.  When there is darkness, you cannot see, you stumble and fall, but when the light comes into a space, all that has been hiding comes into view.  Darkness cannot overcome light.  

Light existed before darkness because God existed before anything ever existed.  Light is essential to our very life and the life of the planet.  Everything is given life through light.  Let’s be the light that God has called us to be.  Let’s be a reflection of Who He is and others will be attracted to us and then we can truly bring the Kingdom of God to the earth just as Jesus did when He came to live among us and show us how to live!

CREATED IN GOD'S IMAGE

We are created in the image of God.  We are a resemblance of God created to manifest His glory thoughout the earth.  When God created Adam and Eve, it appeared that He wanted to share His love and be loved, and He loved mankind so much that He gave him a will of his own.  God did not create robots but people with a free will who would choose right from wrong and also choose to love or be loved by their Creator God.

Adam and Eve forfeited their identity when they fell into the trap of decepton when Satan convinced them that if they ate of the forbidden tree that they would become like God.  Satan has been trying to steal our identity since the Garden of Eden.  "And he (Satan) said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?"  Genesis 3:1  (The Every Day Life Amplified Bible)

He even tried to steal Jesus's identity when he said, "If you are God's Son....."  Matthew 4:3  All the evil one needs to do is pu…
