Why Light And Dark Hate Each Other – Genesis 1:4

God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.” Genesis 1:4

No matter how much we try to make it work together for our good, it won’t – Light and Dark do not play well together. When the sun rises, the evening hides. Perhaps God divided them because they can’t co-exist in the same space. Light and dark are synonymous with the internal struggle that we face – flesh versus spirit and sin versus righteousness. The struggle is daily…it is by the minute….it is by the second. I can feel the angst of the battle waging in my own heart and my mind. If the truth be told, for every good thought one has, the darkness counters with a wrong thought. Sure people claim how integrous, righteousness and ethical others are, but do they really know if the darkness is winning the battle for the soul? Maybe that person is covering up of the darkness with a manufactured external light. In this day and age of the Church, christians seem far too comfortable walking in a blended light and darkness.

Wake up christian and do not be entangled with the snares of this world. Did not Christ die to rescue us from darkness and bring us into his marvelous light? The light of Christ is the bible, his holy Word. The bible is like a lamp that banishes darkness from thoughts and emotion so that we become more like Christ. Therefore, read your bible daily and digest the light of the Lord or else darkness will have its stealth like way.

Christ did not say that he was returning for the children of political correctness, secularism or cultural relativism. He said he will return for the children of light. So, pick a side. Choose light.
