Your light could be shining but the moment you meet somebody who is in the darkness your light can be extinguished. God saw it fit that we must have light before we were created. Genesis 1:3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. When you are in the dark look for light. Sometimes we can see that we are in darkness but we justify. 2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? The scripture does not mean we must not have relationship with them but don’t partake in their evil ways. Our love for them must attract them to Christ. It is important to see to it that nobody switch off your light else you’ll have fractures.
A dark place only needs somebody with bright idea who would enlist the assistance of everybody to bring light into a dismal period in history. Once light arrives, darkness departs.
1 John 1:5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
John 15:4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
