The Life Changing Light Of God s Word

The Life Changing Light Of God s Word

In later years, after I had given my life to God and invited Jesus to be my Lord and Saviour, all that changed. The Bible became alive to me; words and verses jumped off the page to me, and I received understanding; the lights went on!

At salvation, when we give our lives to Jesus and become Christians, we begin a wonderful eternal life with him, first on this earth and then in heaven. You may be asking, "What is Christianity all about? What is salvation? How exactly do I become a Christian?" Whether you have been a Christian for a few days or many years, you may have many questions but have probably realized from the Bible that God has so much for you. The Bible is God's Word to you and has all the answers to your questions. It is our prayer that as you work through this book of 366 short daily devotions, you will be enlightened and excited by God's Word and desire all he has for you as a Christian. We trust that these devotions will help you to understand the Bible better. In the devotions, we quote scripture verses, give references to many others and, with our words of explanation, try to clearly present an array of topics important to us all as Christians. You will read about God's unconditional love and forgiveness, salvation, and becoming a Christian. We have devotions on how he wishes to walk and talk with you and guide you. God has a truly abundant life for you both now and in heaven. We discuss how the power of God's Word and the Holy Spirit can change and mature you to be more like God each day. We also delve into other areas, such as faith, healing, prayer, sharing Christ with others, and so much more. We put a strong emphasis on how to grow as a Christian, how to walk in all of God's promises, and the role of all Christians in the church.

Abiding may sound passive and inactive, but it is the active process of stayingstaying close to Jesus, focusing on Him, walking with Him, and living in His light. If walking as He did is how our claim to live in Him is realized, then we need to know what He did that we should be doing as well. Jesus experienced fellowship with His disciples, obeyed His heavenly Father, was humble to the point of death, grew in wisdom and the knowledge of Scripture, and prayed always. God calls each of us to different tasks, places, and purposes, but one thing is consistent for all of us: we cant do any of it or go anywhere without Him. Jesus had His unique purpose in this world as do we, and so just like Him we need to remain in the Father. His life was a living sacrifice, and it is our spiritual act of worship to live like Him. As we step into Gods light, it will shine truth on our livestruth that is sometimes hard to recognize, hard to acknowledge, and hard to live out. But as we learn to live in His light, He gives us clarity, understanding and transforms us from the inside out. We learn to walk in His light shining it wherever we go. Why? God loves the whole world, and He loves you. Everything He calls us to do according to His purpose is to show His love to the world and bring glory to Himself. As you work through the disciplines of fellowship, obedience, humility, meditation, prayer, and worship, you will learn how to draw close to the Father, follow the example of Jesus, and shine His light bright for all to see.

Earthly man does not always understand the revelations of the Word; it is therefore sometimes necessary to use metaphors or parables as Jesus did when teaching the Jews about the kingdom of God. In the same vein, this dissertation uses the metaphor of a light bulb that can emanate light""when plugged into an electrical source""to the light that shines from God. Going further with this metaphor, the "light bulb of God" takes its energy from the Lord himself as it shines in the lives of everyone who believes in God. Light is used to show the way, as roads, airport runways, and stations are lit to facilitate easier traveling to humans. Light, as humans know it, was only possible after electricity was discovered. Caldwell stated that in New York, "by the late 1870's electric light was no longer a novelty, though the city didn't get its first consumer power grid until eight-teen eighty-two." The city put electrical lights to good use as the New York Train System lit up the tracks twenty-four hours a day""this provided an indication of the way the train would go. This was considered light that would guide the way for so many people travelling the city. This train line pointing to the way people should go can be seen as a metaphor for The Way in a biblical sense. There are people who do not know or believe that the first light was God's light.

DoC BiC's history as a disciple of Christ is long and complex. His life as a physician, surgeon and career military officer (Colonel) was built upon a spiritual foundation dating as far back as he can remember, or as he puts it: "at least since a toddler on my mother's lap in devoted church life." Doubting that he ever did consciously not believe in God, and Christ as his Savior, he does note his public formal declaration as early as around the age of twelve, already well into a Christian life of worship. Growing up in the projects of Bradenton, Florida afforded the early honing of prayer skills and spiritual warfare. And, his subsequent migration through various Protestant denominations and Catholicism helped him develop a mature view of the commonality of true worship as well as an appreciation of the divisiveness of bias within the body of Christ. He credits non-biblical doctrine and tradition as a severe stumbling block until God finally rescued him from it. Now, as he makes his rounds through non-denominational fellowships, his grey-haired perspective advances into senior mentoring and blessing of his brothers and sisters, in his love for the Kingdom of God. Long ago recognizing his calling into the office of Teacher, he has pursued his studies and support intermixed with his secular careers, always devoted to staying attuned to God's next mission for him. He partners with a devoted wife of 36 years who wears a mutually beneficial gifted intercessory prayer calling, as well as being blessed by gifted callings upon his children, equally beneficial and mutually supportive. His only pursuit today is to "Be Still", hear his Father's voice, and then move out: "I was born into death, I died into birth, and now I live in immortality to serve my Father."

We were created for a purpose, but in this constantly changing world, many of us become disillusioned by life and fail to discover our purposes and embrace our destinies. We meander through life, seeking to find ourselves and a meaning for our existence; yet we remain disoriented and unfilled. But there is hope. Our lives do not have to be like this; we can discover our purpose and walk in our predestined roles. The person God created us to be is within us but has become obscured with the trivial issues we allow to define us. Author J. C. Johnson’s From Obscurity into God’s Marvelous Light: Finding the “You” that You Were Predestined to Be, demonstrates how answering God’s call on our lives empowers us to find our purposes and live in our destinies. When we answer God’s call, we embark on a life-changing journey. We are transformed and become the persons God intends us to be. We emerge from obscurity and into His marvelous light. Johnson uses her personal experiences and life lessons to inspire and empower us to travel our journey and to find and embrace the person God predestined us to be. Are you willing to find who you were predestined to be? From Obscurity into God’s Marvelous Light: Finding the “You” that You Were Predestined to Be will help you find that person and leave a legacy that will impact the lives of others for generations.
