Rats fleeing a sinking ship.
Cockroaches hiding as the light is flipped on.
The same thing happens to evil when you expose it to light. It scatters, looking for a dark retreat in order to hide.
Sin grows in the dark but Christians are called to live in the light.
Jeremiah 23:24 (NIV) – “Can anyone hide in the secret places so that I cannot see him?” declares the Lord. “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.”
As my Facebook status said,
“All Satan wants is a little crack. Once you give in and allow him through the tiniest opening, he’s succeeded.
Call evil what it is. Expose it to light and it tries to hide like rats scurrying when the switch is turned on.
Stand up for the truth. Always do what is right.
James 1:27 (NIV)
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
Friends, you probably don’t need to look far to find a widow or an orphan to help. Reach out to them especially tomorrow. Don’t just give from your abundance. Give from your heart.”
Merry Christmas to all!Tweet
