“The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.” (Matthew 4:16-18)
Beloved, the world we live in is full of darkness; darkness represents sins of all kinds and wickedness. In fact, sin can be categorized into three types:
- lust of the flesh,
- lust of the eye, and
- the pride of life (1 John 2:16).
Don’t be surprised when people are telling lies, stealing, fornicating, committing adultery, engaging in sexual immorality, etc.; it is what the beautiful world that God has created has become. God is not moved; He made arrangements before sin entered the world.
Beloved, sin started from heaven and the architect of sin is Satan, a deceiver and a liar (Isaiah 14:12–15).
Thanks be to God for sending Jesus Christ to crush both sin and the orchestrator of sin.
Dear beloved, the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is the light of the world (John 1:5). Let people know about the good news so that they can accept Jesus Christ and eschew sin.
Abba Father is waiting for you with open arms to receive you and make you His own again. Hallelujah! Glory to the Highest!
