The Bible poses the question to every believer: “What fellowship does the light have with darkness?”
This question to me is one that is challenging, easy to comprehend but hard to answer. You maybe asking the question: Why is this question hard to answer?
My response is this question is hard to answer because there is a certain level of darkness that if we are truthful with ourselves…we like. There is a place in us, a behavior we participate in that if the truth could be told, we haven’t yet fully surrendered it to God.
This area that I am talking about is an area of darkness that we’ve allowed willingly at times to break our fellowship with the light.
I am not judging and please don’t judge me! However, have you ever felt like the Apostle Paul when he declares,
“The good I would do, I don’t do and that which I don’t want to do I find myself doing?”
This inner darkness which is not sinister, or destructive to others can and is destructive to our fellowship with the God.
So, what I realized is this when Christ died on the cross and rose with all power in his hand he gave us the power (Holy Spirit) to bridge that gap of separation and create fellowship.
So, what I have tried to do is understand that there is the power of darkness (sin) working within me. However, according to the Apostle Paul he says with the mind I have the ability and the power to override the darkness because of what Jesus Christ did on the Cross.
Let’s talk a look at this scripture:
If you want to read it in its entirety then it is Rms 7:24. However, I wanted to focus on the word mind.
In my opinion, the word mind is so important here in this text. The word mind reminds us that we have a responsibility and the power to override the darkness within by placing our minds under the control of God’s word.
When we allow our minds to be under control of God’s word we can shed light on the darkness that resides within. We can make this part of us that is not surrendered to God’s authority obey Him
But this approach to eradicating the darkness within will take a clear, concise decision by us. This decision that we must make is one that loves God more then sin, accepts that God knows best and has a try desire to be the best for God.
Make today the day that you tell the darkness within,
“No more from hear on out I am turning the lights on.”
