Allowing God's Marvelous Light to Penetrate Our Dark Soul
It seems as though I have fought such intense battles lately! In fact, it has
seemed that each day is just another part of one continuous battle. When
Christ says that “I am the light of the world”, you have no idea what you are
in for when you embrace Him. His light is so penetrating. I have battled with
sins my whole life. Some I have desired to get rid of immediately, some I have
not. Often I believed a lie that I was a good person and my sins weren’t so bad!
I believed that I deserved some level of success, because of the things that I
have done well in my life. But I have found that the penetrating light of Christ
has revealed new dark crevices in my life. Sins that I have not seen as “so bad”
or sins that I have not really wanted to deal with and when Christ began to shine
his light on those dark places in me, it was alarming, no unnerving, even terrifying.
My flesh fights so hard to stay alive, my old man has such a foot hold in some
places that I did not want even to call those sins what they were! But God’s
glorious, but terrible light has brought me to a new place in which I began to see
all of my world through the lens of what I would lose if I let this sin continue in my
life. It was difficult for me to admit to myself that what I was doing was indeed
EVIL and WICKED. It was nothing that I wanted to admit to, but as Christ shone
his light on me, I found that it was true. Peter says that the Jews are indeed
unique, chosen, set apart nation, which God has used to praise Him through
rescuing them from darkness into his light. 1 Peter 2:9 says, “ But ye are a
chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that
ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into
his marvellous light;” It is in my hope that Christ may use some of the parts of my
journey to help others and that my journey from darkness will indeed bring others
to praise God, as I am learning in a meager way to do each day.
