Mt 4:16 the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”


We are born in darkness for we are born in sin.  We live in darkness because we live in sin.  God is Light.  When Jesus came to this earth He brought God’s Light with Him.  The Light of God overtakes the shadow of death.  It is our choice whether we continue to live in darkness and the shadow of death or choose God’s Light, Jesus, and the eternal life He gives us.  Jesus paid the ultimate cost for this Light to shine for us by leaving His throne and experiencing all we experience on this earth, then dieing a painful death and rising from death showing that His Light conquers death.  All we must do is believe, accept and follow Him.  God’s Light is not for us alone but for all His creation.  We must share the Light He gives us with others.  Our question is do we have His Light in us?  If so, are we allowing His Light to shine on others?
