TOPIC -  DARKNESS IS PAST

Read: I John 2:1-8

 [1]My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:[2]And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.[3]And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his
commandments.[4]He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.[5]But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.[6]He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.[7]Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.[8]Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.

MEMORISE: _Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining_ (I John 2:8).*

EXPOSITION
Basically, absence of light is darkness. Darkness connotes pervasive evil and wickedness. Its direct products are sadness, sorrows, sickness and diseases. Other darkness’ offspring are debts, discontentment, failure, distress, anguish, torment and lack of spiritual enlightenment, which is chief all!.

 However, the entrance of God’s Word overwhelms darkness permanently *(Ps. 119:130).* Jesus Christ, a free gift to man, appeared and did irreparable destruction to all works of darkness. God’s pronouncement in Genesis chapter one made darkness which covered the earth to disappear.

 The devil always likes to keep anyone in the dark while Jesus came as the Way, the Truth and Life *(Jn. 14:6).* Dear devout, if truly you have been called to the Lord’s marvelous light from darkness, devil has no hidden place in, and around you any longer. The time of darkness should be past and light shines now and ever more.

 God commands you to shine, even if thick darkness covers the earth. He said He (God) will show forth His glory on you, provided you recognise yourself as a child of light. As an agent of light, you must promote light and all what it represents.

 When people lament that darkness reigns supreme in a Church, town, home or country, this is relative because true children of light operate under it, unhindered. They are not being superintend over by darkness, because Jesus Christ has appeared, darkness and its representation is over! May this be truly so in your life, today and always.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, please forgive all my years of exploits in darkness.
2. Oh Lord, let Your light shine in homes that are currently facing the wrath of the Devil, and give them victory.
3. Father, deliver the youths and the Church in general from this perilous world and help us to walk in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
