SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/10- “In The Struggle Between Light And Darkness—Light Wins!” (John 1:5)
Premise Question: Do we, as members of humankind, personally have any impact or bearing on the ultimate outcome of the struggle/battle between light (righteousness) and darkness (evil); what is our part, in the overall scheme, and how should we respond, to the outcome of said struggle?
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. (John 1:5 NLT)
The visible radiance of the illuminating light of the world, the person of Jesus Christ, The One True God, has come forth, shinning in all of His glorious splendor and magnificent brilliance, dispelling the darkness of the enemy of our souls, and its evil wickedness, dispatching, conquering and overcoming the darkness completely, because, in the conflict and struggle between light and darkness, light will always overwhelm and vanquish the darkness and is therefore, forever established as the victor. (John 1:5 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The only impact or bearing, if any at all, that we, humankind, have on the ultimate outcome of the struggle/battle between light and darkness, good and evil, righteousness and wickedness, is that we are one of, if not the primary, reasons the battle was waged. For it was an intense struggle/battle for our very souls!
But light, which already has and always will win the war between darkness and light, has triumphed over the darkness and everything within it; death included!
Jesus Christ is our Champion, our Victor and Conqueror, as He is The Light which has vanquished the darkness and every kind of evil that lives in the darkness. For the prince of darkness was no match for the glorious and Holy Light who is the origin of all that is good, Holy and righteous, for He is The Light sent into the world to dispel the darkness and rescue humankind from the clutches of the evil one, the enemy of our souls, who resides in the darkness.
Our part is to accept Papa God’s gracious and most merciful gift, His Son Jesus Christ, as our personal LORD and Savior. And, our privileged obligation and dutiful response should be to immediately and faithfully, empowered by His Spirit, to begin to live in His Light even as His Light lives in us and shines forth out of us and into the world, dispelling the darkness around us!
L-I-G-H-T- Living In God’s Holy Tent!
Here is an important caveat, a quote from a famous revivalist from the 20th Century, that we all need to seriously consider, with a heart of sincerity: “If you don’t do your part, don’t blame God.” Billy Sunday…
Let us therefore, rejoice and be glad, worshiping and praising Papa God, with hearts full of thanksgiving and gratitude, that our enemy has been defeated and completely vanquished, by The One True Light of the world, Jesus Christ, and because of that, we can now live victoriously in His Light! Blessings…
