The Light Outshines the Darkness–Every Time!
John 1 The Passion Translation (TPT)
The Living Expression (www.Biblegateway.com)
And the Living Expression was with God, yet fully God.[c]
2 They were together—face-to-face,[d] in the very beginning.[e]
3 And through his creative inspiration
this Living Expression made all things,[f]
for nothing has existence apart from him!
4 Life came into being[g] because of him,
for his life is light for all humanity.[h]
5 And this Living Expression is the Light that bursts through gloom[i]—
the Light that darkness could not diminish![j]
I believe it was Dr. Creflo Dollar whom I heard say, “Darkness will never outdo the Light.” Darkness will never outdo the Revelation of the unfailing, unchanging, unstoppable Truth of God–His Living Word.
The Word of God sheds Light–revelation, understanding–in our minds when we read it and hear it, and all the more as we think about it and ask the LORD for clarification. He is faithful!
I am so amazed and thankful that He has given us His Living Word, His Living Expression. The answers for successful life are ALL in there.
I’m about to go read more myself. No matter how many Scriptures I have memorized or how many messages I’ve heard from the Word, I want more. It is at once deeply satisfying and creating an insatiable hunger for more.
Jesus the LORD IS the Living Word. He is our Teacher, our Salvation, our Hope, our Peace, our Joy, our Love, our Strength, our Victory, and He eternally speaks through His Word.
If you have thought you could not understand the Bible, you may be right. This holy Book is only truly understood if you have the True Teacher, Jesus Christ, within you. You must be born again by His Spirit, and then He will enter your life and start helping you understand His Victory Book, the Bible.
Life can be hard, very hard. But Jesus makes it simple. Just find out what He says and do it.
With that, I’m going right now to get more instruction for myself!
