Overcoming Darkness with Light

by Pastor Tim

John 1:5 (NIRV) The light shines in the darkness. But the darkness has not overcome the light

Darkness overcoming the light – impossible! There is no such thing because darkness never overcomes light but light always overcomes darkness. Light always overcomes the darkness as evidenced by the act of using a flashlight to shine light in any place that is dark. Where would our police officers be if they didn’t have a way to shine light in the many areas of darkness they encounter every day.

How many of us have some awareness that there is a battle going on in this world today? It’s a battle of good verses evil. God verses our enemy satan. But the good news for us as believers – the battle has already been won!

But has satan thrown in the towel and admitted defeat? No he hasn’t. And for those non-believers who don’t know Jesus – they are living without any protection of his harassing schemes.

What about our future as Christians living in the same world today? Are we protected by the darkness the enemy is spreading around this world? We read in John 12:46 (NKJV) I have come into the world to be its light. So no one who believes in me will stay in darkness. Jesus is not only our savior from our past sins and darkness but He is the assurance of our protection for the future. What is Jesus protecting us from? Primarily the continual barrage of satan’s lies and attacks.

The just Judge of the entire universe will come one day and judge those who preferred darkness and their resulting bad choices to sin. Regrettably, I still sin (even as a believer) but now (unlike the unbeliever) I now stand in His light of forgiveness and confess my sins. The cool part is that the same blood of Jesus that saved me from my past sins also saves me from my current and future sin. It’s all about me trusting in Jesus’ forgiveness throughout my life and living in the light.

For those unbelievers who refuse to bow their knee to Jesus, their evil works done in darkness will be exposed. Without fail they will be exposed to the light of Jesus and be judged in perfect righteousness. And though everyone will go through a judgment (for the believer) the blood of Jesus has already paid the penalty for our sins.   

How about you? Are you one of God’s chosen and ready to be taken to our real home in heaven? It all begins with a prayer of accepting Jesus into our hearts as our Lord and Savior. Don’t hesitate for a minute to make that choice and ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

Pastor Tim.
