The Soil of Lies

eMoment by Laurie Aker

Focus Scripture: Luke 11:33-36

33   “No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar 

or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may 

see the light. 34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. 

When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light,

 but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness. 

35 Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness. 

36 If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, 

it will be wholly bright, as when a lamp with its rays gives you light.”

We have been given the Light—

Jesus Christ.

No matter how dark it gets,

we don’t want to hide our Light under a bushel.

On the cross, Jesus overcame darkness and death,

but the enemy seeks to thrust us back to the

grave from whence we came. He shovels lies upon our soul,

hoping to snuff out the light of life and bury us alive.

We must stand up by faith,

brush off the devil’s dirt in the power of God’s grace,

 and walk forward in the Light whether we “feel” like it or not.

1 John 1:7

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, 

we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus 

his Son cleanses us from all sin. 

We have been given the Light.

We must walk in the Light.
