2013 January 17 - Morning Manna

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

(Genesis 1:1-5)

Today's Morsel: Do you remember the first day you were baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost? The Lord told the children of Israel that the Passover was to be a day of remembrance for them forever.  They were to never forget that God delivered them from bondage. But sad to say today, so many, like Israel, fail to remember their deliverance day. When we fail to remember the things that God does for us, it's easy to return to our old ways.  If you will notice in scripture today, the first thing that God did on day one was that made light. And then He divided that light from the darkness because the earth was void and full of darkness. When there is an absence of light, everything is dark. Once you are born again, you become a child of the day not of the darkness or night (1 Thessalonians 5:5); which is of the light, because God is light ( 1 John 1:5).  You shouldn't be a part of the world (2 Corinthians 6:14). It's dark. We are in the world, but we are not to be of it, meaning its ways.  And so the day that you are born again, it is your first day out of darkness and you are now to walk in His marvelous light and let it shine forever more.


Sing: There's a call come ringing o're the restless waves, "Send the light! Send the light." There are souls to rescue, there are souls to save,  Send the light, Send the light.

Send the light! The blessed gospel light, let it shine from shore to shore! Send the light, and let its radiant beams Light the world forever more.
