Light in the midst of darkness


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times For the Christian there is always light even in the midst of darkness because God, the source of the light salvation, is always there for His children. Even in the light of day, the world is often a dark place, because while the dead of night may be its preferred time to perform its wickedness, sin is always at work seeking to make even the brightest day a time of darkness. Nothing can withstand the power of sin and the spiritual darkness it creates, nothing that is save the light of the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ. Only the light of Christ can endure the darkness of sin and triumph over it, banishing it from the lives of those who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and let Him take charge of their lives, guiding them through His Holy Spirit. That’s why the Christian, though they may be surrounded by the darkness of sin, is never trapped in the dark like those who do not know Christ as their Lord and Savior. For the Christian there is always the light of Christ even them midst of the deepest darkness of sin and that’s why Christians do not fear that darkness because they are protected by the one who can and does banish it.
