PRAYER: Please pray for our new members in our community. Pray that they and all of us would earnestly dig deeper into the Word of God to help build our relationship with him.
DEVOTION: “But anyone who hates a fellow believer is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.” – 1 John 2:11
Ever been in the dark? Like real darkness that doesn’t let you see anything? Not even your hand in front of your face? It’s frightening for sure.
John is warning us against this type of darkness. The type that causes us to hate and avoid helping our fellow believers. We are called out of the darkness. We are called out of the hatred. The lies. The jealousy. The envy. The greed. The lust. The narcissism. The lack of humility. The list goes on and on.
Our calling is into the light. Our calling is to shatter and break the darkness and let Jesus shine into our lives and the lives around us.
Are you in the darkness today? Are you holding onto some darkness that is weighing you down? Turn to the light of Jesus. Ask for strength, help, peace and guidance. He’s there. Let His light shine today
