DAY 4 THURSDAY: JUNE 2020

OPERATE IN THE TRUE LIGHT OF GOD!

I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness (John 12:46).

Every Christian is expected to operate in the true light of God in life. When you fail to operate in the true light of God, you dwell and abide in darkness. The true light of God is found in Christ Jesus. The Bible says in the opening text that I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to operate in His true light in life. Anyone who operates in the true light of God will experience God’s awesome presence in his life. A Christian is expected to operate in the true light of God by constantly reflecting His glory daily in his life forever.

The Bible stated vividly that Jesus Christ is the light of the world in life. In Him, there is no darkness at all because He is the true light of God in life. That is why the Bible says in John 8:12, “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Therefore, Jesus Christ who is indeed the true light of God is the covering of divine glory upon the life of a Christian. Whoever that is in Christ Jesus walks in the true light of God because Jesus is the light of the world in life. Indeed, a Christian that has Jesus Christ in his life is indeed carrying the true light of God in his life forever.

Jesus Christ who is the true light of God is the light that gives illumination, revelation and wisdom of God to the world in life. Without the true light of God, man will continue to abide and dwell in darkness in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in John 1:9, “That was the true light which gives light to every man coming into the world.” In fact, through the gospel message of Jesus Christ a Christian receives the true light of God into his life. Jesus Christ is the only true light of God that gives light to everyone coming into the world in life. Indeed without Jesus Christ, there is absolutely no true light of God and the world automatically dwells in thick darkness in life forever.

Daily Tip: God expects you as a Christian to operate in the true light of God which is found in Jesus Christ who is the light of the world in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it (John 1:5).
