Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 February 6

“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God” (John 3:19-21).

Today’s Morsel:  Thomas Edison is credited with creating the light bulb, but few are aware that it was Lewis Latimer, an African American, that created the filament for the bulb. From the creation, God called for light.  Noah placed a window in the top of the ark to give light.  There was no light placed in the Tabernacle in the Wilderness, created by Moses, in the Holies of All, because God would be the Light.  Jesus told Nicodemus that light has come into the world, speaking of Himself (John 1:4).  And He said that men keep condemning themselves because they won’t come to the Light.  If you are always finding fault with yourself and never think that you are good enough and can never seem to obtain contentment in your life, ask yourself are you close enough to the Light.

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.
