"A man may say, 'I am in the light'; but
if he hates his brother, he is still in the dark.
Only the man who loves his brother dwells in light: there is nothing to make him stumble. But one who hates his brother is in darkness; he walks in
the dark and has no idea where he is going, because the darkness has made him
blind." (1 John 2:9
THE SOURCE OF SPIRITUAL LIGHT.
Jesus said: "He that puts faith in
me puts faith, not in me only, but in Him also that sent me; and he that beholds
me beholds also Him that sent me. I have come as a
light into the world, in order that everyone putting faith in me may not remain
in the darkness." (John 12:44
"For though you were once all darkness, now as Christians you are light. Live like men who are at home in daylight, for where light is, there all goodness springs up, all justice and truth. Try to find out what would please the Lord; take no part in the barren deeds of darkness, but show them up for what they are. The things they do in secret it would be shameful even to mention. But everything, when once the light has shown it up, is illumined, and everything thus illumined (1) is all light." (Eph 5:8-13 NEB).
