This then is the message which ye have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (1 John 1:5)
Today’s Morsel: It has been stated that people who reside in places that have very little daylight are more susceptible to depression and may have a negative outlook on life. I believe this is one of the reasons that Jesus came to give us light. This world is dark. There is no light in this present world. This is why people of the world and those who walk according the world and its ways, often suffer from depression and hopelessness. Paul said, “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:6). When we obtain knowledge of Him, we realize that He is The Light (1 John 1:5). If you find yourself feeling depressed or hopeless, why not try Jesus and live according to His word for He is The Light that will get you out of darkness (John 8:12).
Sing: Send the light, the blessed gospel light, let it shine from shore to shore! Send the light, the blessed gospel light, let it shine forever more.
Thought For Today: Jesus is The Light that gets you out of darkness!
