TOPIC: HOW TO ACCESS LIGHT
Scripture: Luke 1: 79. To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Since we are preserved by light, an understanding of how to access light is very important. Today we shall be considering how to access light.
How do we access light?
We established earlier on that God is light! Hence His words are also light! The following are ways to access light:
1. Encounter with Jesus: Jesus being the fountain of life, a reflection of God the Father, is primarily the Source of accessing light.
The Bible speaking of Jesus:
John 1: 4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Observe the scripture closely, you will notice that the life of Jesus is the light of men. This implies that when a man encounters God by surrendering to the Lordship of Jesus, the life of Christ is given to such a person! It is this life that turns men to light.
The process involves:
A. Salvation: Accepting the substitutionay work of Christ on the cross by confessing the Lordship of Jesus over your life.
B. Transformation: The process of becoming like Jesus which is often described as discipleship.
For the Bible said:
Romans 8: 29. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
God desires you to be conformed to the image of Christ. Thank God for your salvation but what God wants to do with your life cannot be fully achieved until you look like Christ in conduct and in character.
Beloved, since you have been born again, how much transformation has taken place in your life?
There are so many born again christians who still exhibit the character of the devil! Some persons, wickedness is their second name.
You wonder what is the correlation between their lives and that of Christ. It is time to have a personal examination like the Bible said;
2 Corinthians 13: 5. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
Perhaps, you have never encountered the life of Jesus being the light of the world, you need to do so! From our opening scripture we discover, one of the reasons why Jesus came was to give light and that light is His life:
Luke 1: 79. To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Who are those that sit in darkness and in the shadows of death? This is what the Holy Ghost is saying: every man born into this world is in darkness.
In this realm you are subject to satanic afflictions because you belongs to a kingdom that is controlled by darkness. Darkness represents sin, disease, death etc!
There are so many souls tied down in this kingdom of darkness!
Beloved, don’t be part of the statistics, surrender your heart to Jesus. This is not a case of I’m going to church, rather it is a case of encounter with the life of God.
The life that turns things inside out! It is possible to be enlightened with scriptures and yet this life is absent. Bible quotation is not equal to life in Christ.
So check your life very well and ask a sincere question, am i saved?’ Has the light of God shone into your soul? Do you have the life of God? If No!
Please do so now by praying this short prayer:
_Lord Jesus I receive you as my Lord and saviour, I believe you died for my sin and were raised for my justification. Thank you Jesus for dying for me in Jesus name._
If you prayed this prayer please kindly reach out to us.
2. The second way of accessing light is through speaking/word of God.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. The decision of where to spend eternity begins now. Think about this!
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord Jesus we really want to encounter you daily. Help me to know you more than I know you now in Jesus name I.
– I declare that every work of darkness in and around your life gives way now in the name of Jesus.
– May you experience the life, peace and joy that Jesus brings in the name of Jesus.

God bless you.
