Darkness Never Defeats The Light


"Then Jesus spoke to them saying, 'I am the light of the world; he who follows Me will not live in darkness, but will have the Light of life'" (Jn.8:12).

Jesus spoke these epic words right after He said to the woman "caught in adultery," "I do not condemn you either. Go. From now on sin no more" (V11). Have you ever thought about how darkness has no power over light? You can't walk outside on a sunny day and use a "flashdark" to darken the place... Quite the opposite ---- wherever light goes, darkness fails. The woman of John 8 had her sins pulled out into the open. The darkness of her sins was forced to face the light of Jesus...All of us at one time or another have had this exposure and it can be embarrassing or even terrifying. But looking back at these experiences finds us better for it... No more deception and no more lies... We can now deal with the sins and take the necessary steps to correct them. It doesn't mean that there are no consequences. In the case of the woman in chapter 8, we are not told how her husband and the rest of her family reacted. The lesson is this: If one is caught in a web of lies and the darkness is overwhelming them, they must run to the light of Jesus. It will force one's sins into the light so that lies don't need to be discovered and that more lies will follow...Jesus will not condemn His children for the past. He will forgive us so that we can have a better future...The Light wins...

Have a great day... Let His Light shine through you... Love mark Phil.4:11
