3 Fifty Million in the Dark

In contrast to the death our sins so richly deserve, God made a way we might have eternal life. The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. God gives eternal life as a gift to every one who believes on his Son. Eternal life is something that every one who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ possesses. He that hath the Son hath life. And nothing in heaven or earth can ever dispossess them of that gift.

Has the light of the glorious gospel of Gods grace shone in your heart? Have you seen yourself as God sees you and because of that sight sought refuge in the Savior? Until you do you will be wandering about in spiritual darkness for the Lord Jesus is the Light of the world and apart from him there is nothing but darkness.

When the power grid in Northeastern America failed it was a painful calamity for millions of people. However, far worse is the calamity of a single soul that never comes to the Jesus Christ for salvation. For when this lifetime is over that soul will have to spend eternity in the darkness of hell. How long is eternity? When millions of black nights have come and gone eternity will just be beginning. Make no mistake about it. Eternity is forever. According to Jude, lost souls are like Wandering stars to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

The sadness of having to spend eternity in the darkness of hell will make them weep and gnash their teeth. Oh what a future awaits those who never come to Christ. The saddest fact by far about it all is that no one needs to perish. The Lord is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Lights and power supplies built by man may fail and leave us in the dark but the light that shines in the Lord Jesus will never go out. He shines true for every sinner who wants to trust him for salvation. His light illuminates every saved one as they go about their lives in a world that rejected him. His light will chase away the gloom when it comes time to die so that every believer can die full of hope and anticipation of soon seeing their master. And after they die they can enter the heavenly city where there is no need of the sun for the Lord Jesus will be the light of the place. Lights and power supplies, stars and suns, all may fail but the Light that is in Jesus will never go out!

Hasnt the time you have spent in your life wandering in sins darkness been long enough to prove the dissatisfaction and emptiness of a life apart from God? Oh wont you come to him who said, I am the light of the world so that you might glory in his light for time and eternity?
