I truly hope you’re with me on this…when I talk about the light in our hearts. It’s not my light. It’s not your light. It’s not his, hers, or theirs. It’s the light of the one true Living God who loves us all so much He made the supreme sacrifice in order to give us eternal life.
As Christians in this day and age, we should know if there’s any light in our hearts, it can only come from our Savior. The world doesn’t hold much lasting luster or uplifting appeal. As I flip through my Flipboard app on my iPhone, I see news story after news story about troubles in every land. Finding news of true happiness and joy is like digging for diamonds in a pig pen. Have you noticed this?
The history of the world is written in segments that clearly illustrate man’s inhumanity to man. Almost every day I hear or read about another inexplicable atrocity. And I use the term “inexplicable” from the world’s point of view. Someone who’s never read the Bible, or disagrees with it, or denies the reality found in it can’t fathom how such terrible things could occur…all the while voting for and supporting the very ideas and philosophies that perpetuate such behavior.
We need light in our hearts. Not light running on the energizer bunny…but the Light of God’s love. When you become a Christian (and you should really consider doing that right this very moment), you not only receive eternal mercy…you’re also able to see clearly what was, at best, only foggy before. It’s not mystical. It’s truth. I know you’ve heard the expression “the truth will set you free”. That’s not an expression from a Hollywood movie. It didn’t originate with America’s founding fathers. It comes straight from the Bible.
The Truth of God’s word sets you free from the physical time limits of this world. It also sets you free from eternal torment. Your pain and suffering don’t have to last forever, and with light in our hearts from the Grace of God, you can clearly see Everlasting Love.
In Faith, Hope, and Love…
