Most people prefer the light of day over the dark of night, unless they’re trying to sleep. Darkness is great if you’re trying to rest, but when you need to see where you’re going, the lack of light can be a big problem. And the Bible has a great deal to say about darkness and light. It’s a reoccurring theme used to juxtapose the righteousness of God and the wickedness of this fallen world in which we live. And a big part of the message of sanctification is that God has made a way for people, who once were overwhelmed by the darkness of sin, to step into the light of His glory and grace. God sent His Son to be the Light of the world. Jesus took on human flesh, penetrating the gloom and despair left as a result of man’s rebellion against a just and holy God. And those who place their faith in Him are delivered from the domain of darkness and redeemed as children of light – sons and daughters of God.
