Hasn’t it been troubling these past few weeks with all of the things that the ISIS criminals have been doing lately to Christians and others out of pure hatred and meanness? If someone does not believe the same way you do, I suppose the best thing to do according to ISIS is to chop their heads off and do away with them so that they won’t be an issue any longer. What a dark. depraved, and very confused way of thinking. Who would burn someone alive and then crush them with concrete?
Have you ever turned on a flashlight in a totally dark room? The light penetrates the darkness and overwhelms it. There is no darkness in the path where the light is shining. Turn off the flashlight and the darkness returns to fill the void the light has left.
Do you think that is what may be happening in our world today? Have we allowed the darkness to slip into our lives and overtake the light? Perhaps it is time we all stand up and shine our own lights into a very dark world. Darkness and light can not coexist and perhaps that is why the enemy is working in overdrive to try to overcome the light now.
The light overcomes darkness, and the darkness hasn’t overcome it. John 1:5 World English Bible
