The Lights of Home

“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” 1 Corinthians 13: 12 KJV

Have you ever looked out the window at night and couldn’t see anything? Perhaps the street lights were off and the moon and stars weren’t giving off enough light for you to see anything. I have good news for you. No matter how dark the tunnels of despair, heartaches, trials, crises and criticism are in our lives if we will look beneath all the hurt and pain in our hearts, we will see the lights of hope, encouragement, laughter, peace and joy.

Jesus gives us all of these wonderful things because if we have made a personal commitment to Him and asked Him to forgive us of our sins, save us and come into our hearts to be our personal Saviour, He is the light in our hearts and His light never goes out. Because of all the criticism and sarcasm that satan and people hurl at us with their poisonous barbs, we become discouraged and defeated and we are tempted to give up. All too often instead of looking at the light in our hearts, our precious Saviour, we focus on the darkness of our situations and we suffer needlessly.

It does not matter how many heartaches, crises, criticism and trials we are experiencing. Jesus is still in our hearts and He is shining brightly to bring us hope, joy, peace and happiness once again by His unconditional love and understanding. Stop looking out the dark window of despair and hopelessness. Instead, focus on the bright light in your hearts, the Saviour of the world. He not only is the light in our hearts; He is the light of our home in Heaven.

Of course, if you have never asked Jesus to forgive you of your sins and come into your heart to be your personal Saviour, you don’t have this bright light in your heart. You will never know real happiness, real joy and real peace until you accept the sacrifice that Jesus made for you when He hung on that cruel cross of agony. He died so you may live. Do you have this light in your heart today? Have you said “yes” to Jesus? If not, then not only will you have darkness in the world, you will spend all eternity in darkness in hell with satan.

What is your choice, the light of Jesus or the darkness of satan? Only you can make the choice. Your family, loved ones and friends can’t do it for you as much as they want to do it. Salvation is a personal meeting with Jesus. It is only as we humble ourselves and admit that we are sinners and accept Jesus as our personal Saviour, that we have this glorious light of hope, peace, unconditional love, happiness, contentment and joy in our hearts. Give your heart to the one who gave His life for you. He is waiting for you with His arms open wide.
