The Light of Our Hearts
"The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined."
King James Version
The world thinks that people who claim to be Christians are perfect but Christians are not perfect. They are just sinners who have had the cleansing atoning blood of Jesus applied to their hearts for the forgiveness of their sins. Every person walks in darkness until the light of Jesus shines in his or her heart. Jesus is not only the light of our hearts; He is also the heartbeat of our hearts.
One of the definitions in Webster’s Dictionary for the word "heartbeat" is "the vital center or driving impulse". Jesus is the vital center of our hearts and He is also the driving impulse of our hearts. It is Jesus who gives us the determination and the will power to go on in the face of adversity. Without Him, we are powerless.
Have you allowed the light of Jesus to take the darkness from your heart and from your life? There are many beautiful displays of lights at Christmas and they are awesome. However, the light of Jesus is brighter and more beautiful than any display of lights in the world. Is Jesus the light of your heart?
If not, I urge you; I plead with you to humble yourself, admit that you are a sinner, repent of your sins and ask God to forgive you. Invite the Christ of Calvary into your heart to be your personal Saviour before it is too late. He will never leave you, not even for one minute. He loves you so much that He died for you. Will you say yes to Jesus today?
