Og Mandino; author of one of the best books that I have ever read: The Greatest Salesman In The World. Read this book, you will be very glad you did! Anyway, I saw this quote attributed to him and it make me think about “Light and Darkness”.
As Christians, we live in a world surround by people who do not really believe in God, for if they truly did they would obey HIM and turn to the light that only HE can provide. Yet, even their unbelief can provide us with something useful; it can cause us to remember what we were like before we turned to God. Bad examples can cause us to be better than we are.
John 8:12 ( World English Bible )
12 Again, therefore, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.”
John 14:6 ( WEB )
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.
Though we live in a world of darkness ( towards God ), yet we do have light that can and does in fact lead us to God – Jesus. FOLLOW JESUS, LOVE HIM and remember what HE has done for you. Be Happy, fellow Christian, for you have a great deal to be thankful for.
