Lent Day 26 - Thursday, March 22
John 3:19-21 God Light!
"...God Light streamed into the world, but men and women ran for the darkness....Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil..hates God Light and won't come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in Truth and reality welcomes God light so the work can be seen for the God work it is." (The Message)
Light and Dark. What a contrast! What a difference it can make! Just ask those who live at northern latitudes who bear the depression of long periods of darkness. I know my sleep patterns are all messed up by the Daylight Time change - it is dark again in the morning! I don't wake up as well.
God Light is a different kind of light. God Light can shine in the darkness anytime. It will scatter the darkness of sin and evil. God Light reveals what is sinful in us, often causing us to run from that exposure. We all will have moments of questioning and confusion, of making mistakes. But God Light can shine anew again and again to show us the way! To scatter those mistakes and poor intentions! Seek the God Light to illumine the way to do God's work! Live in the Light!
