Imagine just leaving the eye doctor after your yearly examination. He has pronounced that your eyesight is just as good as a 10-year-old child’s.
As you exit the building, you walk out into total darkness. You can’t even see your own hand in front of you.
The idea of this is very scary.
You know that your eyes are working, but you fail to see anything.
This is what a person who is lost is experiencing. The sad fact is he or she doesn’t realize it.
God is the Light that is eternal. He shows us so many things as we come out of the darkness.
As we get to know God, the blessings that He has for us are innumerable. But the blessings are for those who have accepted His Son, Jesus Christ, as Savior.
It is so easy to begin a personal relationship with the Father — all you have to do is pray.
Admit to God that you are a sinner, repent of your sins and forsake them. God will then lift the veil of darkness from your eyes that Satan has placed over them, and the light of Christ will begin to shine. You will then realize the darkness you have been in.
As you grow in knowing God, the brighter His light will be in you.
Every day will be a joy and there will be a song in your heart and Scripture on your lips.
