God needs our light where the world is the darkest. The reason: The blacker the night, the greater the need for a light bulb. If the bulb does not shine, it is not because of the darkness. Darkness cannot put out a light. If the darkness increases until it is black as a cave, it is still not dark enough to extinguish a light. No one has yet smothered a light by increasing the darkness. Darkness gets darker because the light fails. When we fail to reflect Christ’s light, we let the darkness win.
Jesus said, “Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Mt. 5:16). “The night is far spent, and the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light” (Rom. 13:12). “And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, and cometh not to the light, lest his works should be reproved. But he that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest, that they have been wrought in God” (Jn. 3:19-21).
