For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
(2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV))
Do you think that you are too big of a sinner to be saved by God’s grace?
Do you think that the things you have done are so bad that God cannot possibly love you?
Do you feel that your heart is so dark that God’s light could never penetrate it?
Do you think that your life is darker than the darkness of the void before God spoke to bring forth light?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have bought into one of the biggest, if not the biggest, lie of the enemy. If God can create light that can pierce the darkness, you are not beyond God’s reach. To be honest with you, if you answered yes to any of these questions, you have an issue with pride. You don’t want to admit that you are a part of God’s creation and are worthy of redemption. Instead, you elevate yourself to a place that is above God. If God is able to see all, do all and know all, then you have positioned yourself, at least in your mind, where you are more powerful than God. You have limited God by saying that He cannot do something, and that something is breaking through the darkness that you have in your heart!
God’s light is a redeeming force that is freely given to anyone and everyone who will simply ask.
Are you too proud to ask to be saved from an eternity of darkness where you are cast away from the presence of God?
God’s light can overcome anything.
Has God’s light overcome the darkness of your heart?
