Mid-Week Devotional with Chris Chase
"You, brethren, are not in darkness... You are all sons of light." (1 Thes. 5:4-5) The born-again Christian sees life not as a blurred, confused, meaningless mass, but as something planned & purposeful. His eyes have been opened to spiritual truth. In Christ's first sermon at Nazareth he said that one of the reasons He had come to earth was to preach "recovery of sight to the blind" (Luke 4:18). By nature we are all spiritually blind because of sin. But the Spirit of God helps us see our sin & our helplessness & shows us God's redeeming grace in Christ. We are no longer in the dark -- we know where we came from, we know why we are here, & we know where we are going. In the midst of a world living in spiritual darkness, walk as a child of the light!
