“Light of the world, you stepped down into darkness. Opened my eyes, let me see. Beauty that made this heart adore you, hope of a life spent with you.” These are the opening lines to the song, ‘Here I Am to Worship’. We were once called from the darkness into the light. As we come to know Christ, we come to live in His light.
Once we have accepted Christ we are ‘walking in th light.’ We come to realize that we cannot keep anything hidden from God. We were once under the illusion that we could. But once we believe in Christ, we realize that God always knew what we were doing in our sin. We just come to know that He knows. Once we are walking in the light, we make decisions from the WWJD perspective (what would Jesus do?) As we walk in the light, we cast light along other’s paths as well. This can expose darkness in their lives – and what a great opportunity this can be to minister to them! At times this too can remind us of darkness we yet have in our lives and it allows us opportunity to grow in our walk with Christ.
Yet alas!! We are human and at times we step out of the light and into darkness. Satan is ever knocking at our door, ever bringing temptations before us. Like Christ, he also never gives up. At times we may stumble, but the great love and light of Christ always is there to call us back. Praise be to God for His unending love of you and me!!
