The Darkness Cannot Overcome The Light

e100 - Day 51 - John 1:1-18

By You and through You we were created. We sinned against our Creator, we pleased our flesh, and fell into the darkness of depravity. We have called evil good and good evil, we have substituted darkness for light and light for darkness, bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. We have become wise in our own opinion and clever in our own sight (Isa.5:20-21).  We have walked in darkness, but we have seen a greater light; light has dawned on those living int he land of darkness (Isa.9:2). That light could not be overcome by the darkness. All praise and glory and honor and thanks to You, Lord, for the Word made flesh, Jesus, the light that shined in the darkness of all men. Thank You, Lord, that He was the fullness of You, full of grace and truth, a never ending supply of light that has forever pierced all darkness. Thank You, God, that You have been so gracious to us, so merciful, that we who were not a people are now Your people. How is it that Your own rejected You, and we received You? Thank You, Father and Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ!
