#5498 – Lamp of the Body

Good morning people who take care with what you give your attention to.

Luke 11:34-35 NIV “Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.”

This is a very insightful and important scripture for many today.

Our whole lives follow what we are looking at, and it is this that determines what other people receive from us.

Jesus then tells people to be careful – to see to it, to take heed – that the light within us is not darkness.

This is a holy warning that is sobering.

This really highlights the deep deception that has come upon many who claim to be Christians and followers of Jesus Christ.

If people are ok with calling evil good – because they believe that what the bible says is not absolute truth – then their whole lives are full of darkness. This is a big statement, but I am seeing the fruit of this more and more.

I know people who claim ‘truth’ in a certain area of their lives that is different to what the Bible declares, and it has now spilled over into every area of their lives. They are deceived in thinking that they are ok with God. They are not.

It’s time for repentance to grip many who have allowed darkness to be called light.
