Beyond the Twilight
“But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
How hard it is to walk without a light that will prod you the right direction? How difficult it is to choose which of the path you are going to stepped on? How ambiguous is our vision without a torch to light up our way?
It takes one to admit that without this light, we cannot do anything. We, therefore, are nothing. We can’t stand on our fear that someone could’ve stab us from anywhere. We can’t walk on our intuition that we will fall from a slit or slide from a high pitfall, or else, we do not know where to go.
But most of the time, the absence is not external, it’s definitely internal. We don’t even know that we haven’t had the light to see what we need to see. We don’t even know that we are totally blind.
And blind people don’t even know that they are blind.
But how these people could see again? How can they have the light to bring back their vision? What can be the key?
There is no other way than by believing to Jesus Christ. He is the light of the world. Whoever that follows Him shall not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life, says of the Lord.
Living without the light is like living in the darkness. And it has been our nature to live with it. We love darkness and everything inside of it. There is where the things we thought are important to us, the things we can’t imagine we can’t live without, the finest stuffs offered by the world. Our vices, lusts, romance, addiction, crime and worldly priorities, this is our nature and we are used to it.
That’s why it has been very hard for us to have the light, Jesus Christ. That is because we want those things in the darkness. We can’t surrender it to Him, we can’t leave it.
In order to see again, to have the light, to have the vision on which path to take, the proper discernment for the right direction and to be exact with our life’s decision, we must leave darkness, leave all the things inside of it and go to the light, near Him that will fade out our blindness.
And again, it will be very hard because we are entirely resisting our nature. And it’s hard to renew, to restart and to be born again.
But we need it. Darkness never lead us to something good, it is a pitfall, leading us to a world of punishment and eternal damnation. We need the light, though full of sacrifices and hardships, will lead us to eternal glorification, blessing and utmost delightment.
Yes, delightment. It is the joy we can never found in the darkness. It may offer us the very things we want n life but the light gives us the things we never expect, it’s more than of what we want and no one could have successfully discern what is it.
And this is the first step to salvation, to choose from darkness and light, from blindness and clearness of vision, from eternal damnation and eternal life. It’s a matter of choice.
But however, it is God who permits whom to enter His kingdom and it could be you.
Live a life beyond the twilight.
“A little longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you: he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going.”
