Motel Six says in their commercial that, “They will leave the light on for you” so that you can see them near and far. However, long before Motel Six came into existence, God’s light has always been on. He is always available to us, always has time for us, will always love us, and always have rooms for us. It was never in God’s plans for anyone to perish, but that all should come to repentance, and He is never slack concerning His promises (2 Peter 3:9). So how come we see Motel Six’s lights, which will go out when there is a power failure,but the light that never goes out,the light of the world, people fail to see?
The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light; they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Isaiah 9:2 was referring to the region beyond the Jordan at that time, but if we take a look around us we will see that many people around the world are walking in darkness. Malachi 4:2 tells us, “But to you who fear my name, the Sun of righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings…”
In John 8:12 Jesus said, “I am the light of the world, he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” Which light would you rather see and follow? Motel Six or Jesus who is the true, authentic light of the world? 2 Timothy 1:10 tells us that THE LIGHT WAS MANIFESTED BY THE APPEARING OF OUR SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
There are those who rebel against the light, they do not know its ways, nor abide in its path. The murderer rises with the light, he kills the poor and needy, and in the night he is like a thief. The eye of the adulterer waits for the twilight, saying, no eye will see me, and he disguises his face…( Read Job 24:13-17). I wonder how many of us have done wrong, and believe that the things we’ve done is a big secret. Yet failing to realize that God never slumbers or sleep; therefore He sees everything. When are you going to see the light, and come out of the darkness?
“…God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His (God’s) Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.” —————————————————1 John 1:5-10
