When the world around us grows darker, the primary problem is not with the darkness. Dark can only be dark. That is its nature. The real problem is with the light. When light shines into darkness, it dispels darkness. Let’s decide by an act of our will to allow God to transform us into the image of Christ. In The Mind of Christ T. W. Hunt describes three stages.
1. The Beginning Stage or the Will Principle (Colossians 3:1-2)
2. The Growing Stage or the River Principle (Romans 12:1-2)
3. The Qualified Stage or the Readiness Principle (1 Peter 1:13-16)
“Let your light so shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16, HCSB)
