///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 356| December 21, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
You are the world’s light—a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see. 15-16 Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father.
Matt 5:14-16 (TLB)
Eternal life is in him, and this life gives light to all mankind. 5 His life is the light that shines through the darkness—and the darkness can never extinguish it.
When the Lord Jesus was in the earth, He called himself the Light of the World (John 8:12, 9:5). He added that anyone who follows Him will not walk in darkness but have the light of life. This means no Christian is expected to walk in darkness because they have the light of life. Darkness here stands for the devil and everything that emanates from it (John 3:19-20, 1 John 1:5). As a child of God, you have been born again with a new life not to be dominated by darkness but to dispel any form of darkness.
What made the Lord Jesus the light of the world was the kind of life He had. It is called Zoe in the Greek. It is the God kind of life. This life is a higher kind of life, higher than any life form in the earth. In fact, it is the originator of all other forms of life. Zoe has the ability to restore health to sick bodies, remove demons and devils from people, give life to dead bodies and subdue every operation of darkness.
Zoe is God's answer to dispel every form of darkness. It can flush out satan, sin and sickness (darkness). Our second opening verse says this life is the light of all mankind and darkness can never extinguish it. In other words darkness can never overcome Zoe. This life has made you the light of the world. You can extinguish every form of darkness anywhere with your new life in Christ because the life you have is the light of the world.
'Let your your light so shine before men' is what the Lord Jesus tells us today. He said 'that they may see your good works and give glory to your heavenly Father. Note that good works is about subduing darkness and saving lives (Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.) Don't sit on the life you have without doing anything with it. Don't let any form of darkness prevail where you are. We are on a mission to subdue darkness as the master did in His earth walk so keep moving.
// 🗣SAY BY FAITH
I am born again with a new life to subdue every form of darkness. I don't get overcome by darkness. I live above sin, sickness and satan. I extinguish every form of darkness by my new life.
