Scripture of the Day - January 20, 2012

Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

As in the physical, there is a division between light and dark in the spiritual. What fellowship has light with dark? None. Where the light shines there is no darkness.
John tells us that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all and Peter tells us that God has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. We ought to be prisms of God's light. We ought to parallel God's goodness and let that light shine through us and radiate out to others. If we are indeed children of God, children of the light, then we ought to reflect that light, with love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patience), gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance (self control).
There is a great divide between the works of the light and the works of the dark. When the Holy Spirit quickens you all things are illuminated in your eyes. You see sin for what it is and are repulsed by it. No one has to tell you to not do this or not do see the distinction clearly and don't want to cross that divide.
God's word is a lamp for our feet and a light for our path...let's follow that guiding light along the narrow road to heaven and let's not let the darkness of our carnal nature blind us and cause us to lose our way.
