I went around our home from room to room, turning on necessary lights for it was getting dark inside, as the day was fast approaching dusk.
When I got to the children’s room I found my older one lying in bed immersed in a novel, I was shocked because the lights were not turned on and the room was quite dark!
I could not fathom how anyone could see anything in such a situation
I said, “Why don’t you turn on the light, how can you see anything”?
The answer I received gave me the idea for this article.
In response to my question, I heard the most shocking thing; “but I can see very clearly”! Then I realized that the child had been in the room for a couple of hours, since when the day was much brighter. The eyes got accustomed to and eventually adjusted to the approaching darkness.
“One of the most amazing things about human vision is the incredible range it has.
We can see in very bright sunlight, and we can also see in nearly total darkness”.
Wow! This is how we sometimes are as Christians, settling in a comfort ZONE getting used to routine, customs and traditions.
Getting cold in the process and not being effective anymore, not affecting anyone’s life rather, unconsciously or consciously compromising our faith in standards and values.
John3 19 And this is the condemnation: that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
God specifically gave commands that, He would that we be always HOT not lukewarm or cold, Jesus Christ encourages us to be steadfast in prayers, without ceasing, to go into ALL the world and make disciples of ALL.
There are many examples in the Bible which we need to learn and live by in the work for and walk with the Lord. The Lord has created us as the salt of the Earth and to be a light unto the Nations.
Though the times may be hard where round the Globe, CHRISTIANS are persecuted and slaughted in large numbers for their FAITH, more reason why we need to continually SPEAK THE WORD for the devil is on rampage.
God almighty wants us to let our light shine ALL of the time so what to do is to; TURN ON THE LIGHT!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
