Bless you dear brothers and sisters, may the spirit of the Lord rest on you. Its a great honour for me to enlighten you about the grace of God that has been pour on us in abundant measure.
Spiritually speaking darkness does not really exist, it only appears when there is no light. The absence of light is the reason why darkness exists, but when there is light, darkness has no existence. When there is no light of God in us, then darkness takes hold of our mind and heart. Jesus said, “if you have light in you, how great is that light, and if you have darkness in you, how great is that darkness?”
These days many followers of Christ living their daily life with darkness all around them and in them. It isn’t because darkness wants to follow them but because there is no light in them. And it happens because they did not create time to bring light on themself.
Light would not come to us by himself as many people presume or assume in their mind. Nothing happen by itself in life, all things are made and exist by God divine authority and power. Therefore, light can only come to us when we seek God fervently and devote ourselves to his word. Because the word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
Without the word of God richly in us as bible says, “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another...”, then we walk in darkness and darkness fill our heart and soul and mind. That is why God gave a strict instruction to us through Joshua that we should mediate on his word day and night (twice daily), so that our life (i:e this life and the eternal life) can prosper. For God’s word is eternal.
Those who are not fill with the word of God, cannot truly live a Holy life of Christ that is full of faith.
I pray that God will direct your heart to his word and may his word takes a deep root in your heart and mind.
God bless you and peace be with you always.
Yours in Christ Jesus our Lord and saviour,
Pastor Kollins Arthur
