Critics use the word dark to describe movies, television shows, comic books, songs, and other forms of entertainment that are troubling, evil, or depressing. In the same way, we sometimes speak of something being “in a dark place right now.” That’s biblical terminology; the apostle John frequently spoke of light and darkness. The entire world-apart from the church of Jesus Christ-is in darkness, groping for direction and hope. But the followers of Christ have sunlight streaming onto their path to guide them.
If there’s a dark spot somewhere in your heart or habits, confess it to God and ask Him to remove it from your life. When we get to heaven, we’ll be sinless, spotless, and blameless. Until then, we need to remain on the pathway of light. The Bible says, “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever so brighter unto the perfect day”(Proverbs 4:18)
