2 Samuel 22:29

“For You are my lamp, O LORD; And the LORD illumines my darkness.”

Seeing Deeper:
Light has a way of making the ordinary special.
There is something about lights at Christmastime. Some houses go overboard with lights, spending thousands of dollars in the month of December alone. People travel far just to see the lights at Christmastime.  Light has a way of making the ordinary special.
And so it is with Christ. He came in an ordinary manner to an ordinary people and He came in perfect light. Holy. Righteous. And opened our eyes that we could have His light, too.
Christ came to bring the gift of light to a people who were desperate for understanding and did not even know it. Sometimes the greatest gifts meet a need we were unaware of.

The aha moment when we finally comprehend and understand something that was hidden from us is so refreshing. We emerge from darkness and wonder why we did not see it before. Like a lamp that illumines the room around us, we are able to see and avoid danger and embrace the sweet wisdom that removes us from darkness.
The light of Christ impacts us in many ways.
The Light Opens Our Eyes

“The unfolding of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.” (Psalm 119:130, ESV)

When Jesus opens our eyes, we can see His salvation and understand our need. It is the greatest gift of all. We are all born in sin and remain there until the LORD opens our eyes. To be able to spiritually discern truth is an incredible gift that can impact our lives in profound ways. Walking in wisdom protects us and prevents us from making foolish decisions.
The Light Guides Us

“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105, ESV)

Like a flashlight that lights our path, God’s precious Word and Holy Spirit counsel us and guide us. We don’t have to walk in the dark anymore. Christ is with us.

The Light Exposes

“You have placed our iniquities before You, Our secret sins in the light of Your presence.” (Psalm 90:8, ESV)

No one wants to be exposed, but without the revelation of our sin, we would remain in darkness. The light of God reveals our desperate condition not to condemn us, but to convict us of sin so we can come to the light.

The Light Heals and Gives Hope

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.” (Ephesians 1:18, ESV)

As we draw nearer to the Light, out vision clears and we understand the hope we have in Christ. God heals us with His Holy presence and the light cleanses the darkness in our souls.

The Light Cleanses and Saves

“I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.” (John 12:46, ESV)

Our salvation is secure in Christ—what a gift! But we must abide in Christ and remain in the light to be able to see. The enemy seeks to blind us with deception and steal our joy. Have you believed, friend? Have you seen the light of Christ? Don’t ignore the greatest gift of your life that secures your eternal life. Accept the gift of salvation that Christ brings. Don’t let shame, despair or the problems in this life remove the light of Christ in your life. Merry Christmas!

Shame robs us of all sorts of things. Joy, hope, dignity. Why live with shame when you don’t have to? God has provided a way for us to remove shame and live in victory. Come and release your shame in Jesus’ name. Shame Off You details a biblical method for removing shame and is available at many retailers. Here are a few places you can get Shame Off You.
