Alone in the DARK

Alone in the DARK                                              

We were born into sin. 

That’s what Psalm 51:5 says. Ugh! 

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. -Psalm 51:5

Its author, King David, had acknowledged his own sin with Bathsheba and was recognizing our propensity to sin, even with the first intake of oxygen into our tiny lungs. We’re also reminded that Adam and Eve’s original sin brought about the curse of pain in childbirth. So in sin we were born and into a sin darkened world we arrived.

That was our pathetic beginning—each one of us.

But our Creator was not shocked by this dilemma nor was He content with our destructive situation—so He sent His Son. Jesus came to bring life and light and hope into a dark world and the hopeless state of mankind.

God didn’t just decide one day that he would reconcile the world. It was all planned out all along. 

The apostle, John, gives a glimpse of God’s redemptive plan with these words: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ... In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (John 1:1, 4 & 5).

Throughout John’s Gospel, he declares the work and the glory of Jesus the Christ so that all, through Him, might believe and have the life and light as well as the eternal destination of Heaven.


Are you alone in the dark? If you have not received Jesus as your personal Savior, your soul is in darkness.  
Step out into the light and walk in the Light by believing and receiving Jesus right now.

Simply trust that Jesus is the only Son of God, just as the Bible says, and pray this prayer: Father God, I believe Jesus is Your only Son and that You sent Him to bring salvation to me. I receive Him now into my heart. I ask that You forgive me of my sins and help me live for You. In Jesus name—Amen. 

Praise God, for those who believe and receive His gift of Salvation today!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Do stop in again next week for a continuation of God’s remedy for darkness.
