- Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isa 5:20)
- And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. (Gen 1:4)
- Then I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness. (Ecc 2:13, emphasis added)
These passages from Scripture (shown above) remind us that God calls the light good, and He wants the life that’s within each one of us to emanate from the Light Who is Jesus Christ within us. (Jo 1:4; 8:12) Jesus Christ is the Light and He is good. We must make the decision about whether we want to obey the Lord, and to allow His light within us to shine!
- Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness. (Lk 11:35)
Even as Jesus was sent into the world as a light for all of mankind, He wants us now to show forth His light so that more people may receive salvation through Jesus Christ.
- For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Cor 4:6)
So how may we shine the light of salvation into the darkening world around us? Yes, the Bible gives us answers to that as well!
- If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday. The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. (Isa 58:10-11)
By doing good works, by sharing the Good News of the gospel with all people, and by living obediently to the Word of God, we shine the Light of Jesus Christ and His salvation into the darkness.

I am now not positive where you’re getting your info, however good topic. I must spend some time learning more or figuring out more. Thanks for fantastic info I was searching for this info for my mission.
I get my “info” from the Bible itself! That is the reason why I give Scripture references for each Bible quotation and for most statements that I make in my posts. If you study the Bible regularly, you’ll begin to be able to “rightly divide the Word of truth” as shown in 2 Timothy 2:15. The version of the Bible that I use most of the time is the New King James Version. I’m glad that you appreciated the article, and hope it helps you in your mission.

Thanks, I’ve just been searching for info about this subject for a long time and yours is the greatest I’ve came upon till now. But, what concerning the conclusion? Are you positive concerning the source?
Here’s an online article about God’s love that I’ve been recommending to others. You might like to read it: http://www.awmi.net/reading/teaching-articles/gods_love/.
I include Scripture references when I quote Bible verses so that you may look them up and read them in your own Bible. The Bible is the true source of my thoughts and conclusions. However, I have to state that my conclusions are my own.
I do believe that a new believer, or a believer who has questions, should read articles and books to help them find answers their questions. Also, your first resource for answers should be your own Pastor at the church that you attend. Church attendance is recommended in the Bible (Hebrews 10:25-31), and it’s difficult to sustain your faith, especially as a new believer, without the support of fellow Christians.
My concluding statement in this article is based upon years of Bible study, and also upon the Scripture verses in the article. If you read other articles in my blog, you’ll begin to learn more and more about salvation. God bless you.
I do agree with all the ideas you have presented for your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for starters. May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
I’m happy to hear that you appreciated this post. I am sorry that you felt it was too short. I do try to be thorough in handling my subjects without making them so long as to be boring. That’s a difficult line to walk at times!
May I recommend that you do some internet searches for additional material by Kenneth E. Hagin; Kenneth & Gloria Copeland; Andrew Wommack; Jesse DuPlantis; or Bill Johnson (a Pastor in Redding, CA). God bless you.
