Scripture: 2 Corinthians 6:14
“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”
Can darkness and light commune together? Can they exist together? Think back to our analogy of being in a pitch black room. When you shine even the smallest light – your phone or a small flashlight, can you still consider the room pitch black? It’s not that the darkness has disappeared, it’s just that it isn’t as dark as it once was. Once light enters a room, the darkness dissipates.
It’s like that when Jesus enters our lives. We either believe in Him or we don’t. It’s not a halfway thing. When we accept Him as Savior, the light takes over the darkness and for that we are SO grateful, yes?
The light of Christ in our lives begins to eat away at every bit of darkness in our hearts. But we won’t be perfectly free from sin and hardship until we pass from this earth to the next.
Lord, light and darkness just don’t go together. I pray that the light of Your love will slowly, but surely, take over every aspect of my life – my parenting, my marriage, my friendships, my relationships with the lost, my work, my gifts…everything. I give it all to You. Use me. Make me more like You. More of You, Jesus. More of You.
