8/27/17 – Total Eclipse of the Saints
How many watched the eclipse this past Monday? Unless you were in the total eclipse zone, it was more sizzle then steak. But for those in the right path it was dramatic. As the moon encroached on the Sun, day was turned to night, and darkness enveloped the earth.
Of course, everyone knows that a total eclipse occurs when the moon completely blocks or obscures the physical light of the Sun. The result is physical darkness.
But there is another kind of darkness descending upon our land, spiritual darkness. It occurs when a Christians “Christ Light” within is obscured. Jesus said we are “the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14). Paul said we appear as “lights in the world” (Philippians 2:15).
There are three things Believers must do to shine: PRAY DEVOTEDLY, (Colossians 4:2-6); LIVE WISELY, (Colossians 4:5); and SPEAK GRACIOUSLY, (Colossians 4:6). You and I have a choice. We must “hold forth the word of life (Philippians 2:16), or sit back and allow THE DARKNESS to envelop our land. Are you in or out of the battle? Join us this Sunday, and learn how to TURN UP THE LIGHT!
