May 27 - This Then Is The Message.
1 John 1:5
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
The media today seems to have their own news cycle, whether there is truth to it or not. They need ratings to survive, so whatever will get the most attention is the story of the hour. Nearly every story is filled with negativity in an effort to incite fear in the hearts of their viewers.
Fear is a powerful tool.
It brings darkness all around us and within us.
2 Timothy 1:7
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
God has not given us a spirit of fear, so if we are fearful and afraid it did not come from Him.
Darkness creates more opportunities for the Light to shine brighter.
The message we have heard of Him can bring Light to the darkness, because He is the Light. There is no darkness at all in Him.
1 John 1:6-7
“If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
Does our message bring Light or darkness to those around us?
Are we shining the Light of the glorious Gospel by sharing it with others?
Or do we choose to hide it?
Declare the message of Hope in the darkness today.
There is hope in Jesus.
Tell someone about Him so that they can see their need for Him.
2 Samuel 17-18 | 1 Corinthians 15
