It is revealed to us by Jesus Himself that He is the Light of the world. He is the illuminator who brings the truth before us and brings to us the understanding that is needed to apply that truth to our lives. John also tells us in the letter of 1 John, that in God and Jesus there is no darkness at all. That the truth which is given to us has no gray areas that would bring about doubt within it self for it is all found in the Light of His glory, the glow of His goodness.
Tuesday - Spiritual Darkness - John 3:19
In the conversation with Nicodemus, the man who came to Jesus by night, Jesus states that "the Light has come into the world." He also explains that that light brings forth the life (the spiritual influencing the physical) that is frill and everlasting because of faith, because of believing. Yet Jesus shares that men prefer the darkness (the place of evil and hiding of the truth) because their deeds are evil. Jesus also taught that this evil darkness will bring on death and destruction, robbing those of the life that God wants to bring.
Wednesday - Spiritual Cleansing - Isaiah 1:18
The prophet Isaiah shares with us that God wants to do a cleansing work within our hearts and lives that removes the darkness and the dirt of evil that clings to us in that darkness. Isaiah shares the Lord calls us to come out of the darkness to Him so that He may take the sins that are easily seen (scarlet) and change them to be white as snow (to match the purity of God). That even though they are crimson red, appearing like stains that could never come out, they will be like wool freshly cut from the lamb and bleached in the sun to be white and pure.
Thursday - Spiritual Pride - Revelation 3:17
In the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to John, we hear Jesus state in the letter to the church of Laodicea that they are not able to see their need for the touch of God, the healing of blinded eyes and even their spiritual poverty because of their pride that makes they are in need of nothing. Pride can be a person's downfall, if they think to highly of themselves and not realize their need for Jesus, and God the Father, in each day. He is the One who brings to us the Light of Life and the joy of living it. It is Jesus, that guides and directs us away from the pitfalls of sin that can ruin our lives. If we think we have not the need, we deceive ourselves.
Friday - Spiritual Poverty - Ephesians 2:12-13
Paul shares with us in a similar fashion as John when he tells the church at Ephesus that they must remember that at one time they were a people who were separated from Christ because of sin and not nationality, that they were not considered a part of the covenant with God. They were spiritually bankrupt.. .poor! But that because of Christ they have been brought into the covenant as the new Israel, as those now having a hope because of the riches of His grace and are a part of the Family of God.
Saturday - Saint's Fellowship - Acts 2:42-47
We see in this passage that as the Lord becomes involved in our lives as the Light of direction, He leads us to a fellowship with Him and those who have also chosen to follow Him. This fellowship of caring and sharing, encourages us and strengthens our resolve to draw nearer to the Lord, to grow in His love for Him and others, and to live our lives according to His Word which reveals all that Light that is needed to experience the sweet fellowship of His Presence, day by day.
