Proverbs 4:18-19

Proverbs 4:18 The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
which shines ever brighter until the full light of day. 19 But the way of the wicked is like total darkness. They have no idea what they are stumbling over. (NLT)

Today as you reflect on scripture and how it applies to you, make sure you have come to terms with the fact that there is a right path and a wrong path. Righteous and wicked choices if you will. Frankly, there are many more wicked and sinful paths than there are righteous ones. That’s because there is only one righteous path; having Christ as the lord of your life (instead of you).

Assuming you have come to terms with all of that, let us look at walking in wickedness for a moment. It’s no secret that sin is becoming more prevalent today. In fact, according to an increasingly angry atheist movement, sin is billed not as sin; merely just us expressing ourselves. Unfortunately, since sin is just us moving away from light, people become trapped in a darkness and cannot see where they are going wrong. If they do not begin to turn away, they just go deeper into darkness. The further a person goes, the less light for them to see where they are truly at.

Christ is our hope, He is our light. Walking in His righteousness is like the dawning of a new day because it starts as a dim light and slowly brightens, as we move more and more towards Christ. Christians are called to continue to grow and come closer to Jesus; so that we may go from a beginning sunrise to a brilliantly shinning day. That is your mission, to make a journey from deep darkness to the full light of day.
