Knowledge of Light

2 Corinthians 4:6. For God, who said “ Let light shine out of darkness,” is the one who shined in our hearts to give us the light of the glorious knowledge of God in the face of Christ.  

I was in a new restaurant and went to the restroom.  While there the power went out.  It had no windows and no security light.  I couldn’t see me hand in front of my face.  I had no knowledge what was around me or where the door was.  We need light to gain knowledge.  Jesus, God’s Son, came to earth to bring light into the darkness of our sinful lives.  It is the light of His walk on this earth and the light of His spoken words that give us knowledge of God, His love and forgiveness.  Our question is do we want that knowledge?  With knowledge comes responsibility to use that knowledge.  Our sinful nature resists our giving up our selfish walk.  We must continually choose; choose to receive knowledge through The light of Jesus and walk in obedience or choose to go our own sinful way.
