When attempts to hide self and preserve position finally give way to the weightier thing called conviction, remarkable things happen.
Exposure of our darkest realities,
Acknowledgement of our deepest depravities,
Confession of our darkest sins,
Admittance of our human frailties,
Does not remove us from entering into God’s grace, but rather, ushers us into it.
Until pride is laid down and fear of man is relinquished,
There is no freedom into this marvelous thing called grace.
We must relieve ourselves of all attempts to hide our darkness in the darkness … and step confidently into the transformative power of Christ’s light.
For where there is light there is hope,
And where there is light there is life,
And where there is life,
There is Christ.
A new day emerges for the contrite:
A doorway of hope ...
In purest light.
“For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."
John 3:19-20
"Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."
Ephesians 5:10-11
