Last night I was driving back to our powerless dark home last night, I pulled off the interstate onto the road leading to our home, and wow, what an erie feeling. Alll the street lights were out, several of the business’s lights were off, the traffic lights were off, and the road was in complete darkness minus the headlamps of the vehicles. You expect that on a country lane, but it was very suprising on a city street. It was so dark that is was extremely difficult to see the traffic lights where four way stops are now the order of the day.
And then we go home, opened up the garage door by hand and moved into the house in the dark, feeling our way to the flashlights and firing up the candles to see what we could see.
It’s pretty amazing how much different life is without light!
So, you can guess where this is going. Living light in the darkness is not good. There is so much power in the light. Make sure you are being light in all the darkness that is around you!
6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6, New International Version, ©2011)
