S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
This is the report that John the Beloved gives in his gospel. Light has come into the world, and surely he is speaking of Jesus. However, people have rejected the Light for darkness instead, because their actions are evil.
From the time I was a child, if there was the possibility that something bad might happen I always sought out a secluded, and if possible dark, place so that no one would see or find out. Now if that’s true of us as children, certainly John has defined the problem here. He isn’t speaking of little kids, but of full grown adults who know what they’re doing. Even adults run for the dark when their actions are evil. Jesus is the Light that illuminates everything around us. If what is around us reeks of evil and things that are debauched, Light then becomes the enemy. Perhaps you’re reading this right now and thinking, “I have nothing to hide.” Well guess what? “The Verdict Is In!” The Light has won out in Your life.
I have a Prayer of praise this AM, with a request—bring as much Light to my life as possible! Amen
