White and black, darkness and light, two of the sharpest contrasts we know. In Bible terminology light speaks of righteousness, and darkness of sin and evil. We cannot entertain both in our life at the same time, though it seems many are trying to do just that! As it is in the natural so it is in the spiritual, when light approaches darkness recedes, when light recedes darkness approaches; because light is the overpowering force darkness cannot linger in its presence! So the Bible says, “if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from, all sin” 1 john 1:7. Not only are we cleansed through the blood of Jesus, but we Are also kept clean by His blood as we live and walk in the light of His righteousness, remember that “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all” 1 John 1:6. If we claim to have fellowship with Him and His people, living and walking in the light, there can be no habitual groping in darkness!
The Shining Light
-By Rose Hill
The darkness is passing from our lives today,
True light is now shining on our pathway.
There is no stumbling in the dark night,
Because love for our brother turns on the light.
