“Having No Part Dark” by Todd Tomasella for Safe Guard Your Soul
“The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” Proverbs 20:27
“No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. 34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. 35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. 36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.” Luke 11:33-36
Is my whole being full of the light of Christ?
When we are looking with our “eye” to He who is “the light of the world,” His pure and holy light is flooding our whole being.
When we walk into a room and it’s dark, the only way to vanquish that darkness is to turn on the light – to flood the darkness with the light.
The remnant of Christ’s elect are joyfully abiding in the Savior, seeking His holy face daily, hiding nothing, having nothing to hide… coming to His light so that their evil, the darkness in them can be vanquished, dispelled by the light of Christ, His truth.
Here’s how we flood our beings with the LORD’s holy light:
“Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.” 1 Chronicles 16:11
To remain flooded with the light of Christ, one must “seek his face continually.”
The question is will we, will you allow any part dark in your heart?
