This morning we were sitting in a hospital hallway, waiting to see a doctor in his office. I was reading and my husband was doing a word puzzle, when suddenly someone turned on the light. Wow! We had no idea how dark it had been before.
Do you suppose people “sitting in darkness” spiritually may be totally unaware of the light they’re missing? Getting along okay, satisfied with their lives, oblivious to what richness, satisfaction and delight they’re missing?
I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest. John 10:10
The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light.
And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow,
a light has shined.” (Matthew 4:16)
Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!
