NOTHING BUT LIGHTBy: Darrelyn L. Tutt
"I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on Me should not abide in darkness."John 12:46-------Can there be any greater life-affirming, light-illuminating reality than this?Can there be any adventure more meaningful, purposeful, or "discoverful" than the one composed and created out of nothing but light?Can we imagine a light so glorious, brilliant, and manifesting that the darkness itself flees from it?-------We do well to remember, my friend, that the illumination of darkness is a clarifying and revealing work of the Spirit.Wherever you see the light of God you will experience the life of God and all of its fulness:+No darkness of sin has the power to dominate or rule over it. +No individual has the power to disannul or destroy it.+No wordly power, nor Satan himself, has the power to defy or desocrate it.The light of God, as manifesting itself through the Son of God, can never be duplicated, replicated, or made as His.It is His alone.------The consequence, power, and beauty of light reveals itself through conviction and confession of sin resulting in deeper communion with the Father and the reception of more light within.It may appear to have strange and unsettling temporal consequence but yet will prove a radiant catalyst to the glory of God in its end.This is not a spoken nicety but a guarantee made certain in the resurrection. Be an individual who lives out its life-giving ramifications.This Easter season, my friend, ask Christ to reveal areas of darkness in your life by casting light on the shadows of darkness hidden within.Truly, there is no greater commemmoration of Christ in the Easter season than heartfelt remorse of sin and true repentance. Let no man speak a shade of lie to the contrary. "God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.""If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."1 John 1:5&9 Love the life you live.In Christ ... an adventure.------THREE STUDY EMPOWERMENTS1) God gives us eyes to see shades of darkness through the Holy Spirit. Allow Him access and freedom to cleanse, heal, and make new.Allow Him to foster a beautiful spirit of repentance in you and move with assurance into pure light and into the Easter season.2) When someone repents of sin and is deeply remorseful over it, you stand on sacred, holy ground and should be "experiencing" it.The Spirit manifests Himself in the most curiously beautiful ways but none more significant than by recognition and remorse of sin.Be on the "listen" for confessing mouths this Easter season and ask the Lord to begin with yours.3) Share the message of light and life with someone you come into contact with today and share about the impact Christ has made in your darkness.--------
