Know Where You Belong By: Evangelist Paul Acquah
HAVE YOU CONSIDERED KNOWING YOUR CLASS? Everyone lives in one of two conditions: in spiritual darkness or in spiritual light. There is no middle ground or condition so far as spiritual things are concerned.
All human hearts are in a state of darkness until they receive Christ as their personal saviour. Which class do you belong to, my dear friend? The leaflet you are reading provides an answer to this important question. To which class do you belong, my dear friend? The Bible states that all humans live in one of two different spiritual conditions. There are those living in darkness and those living in light. What does it mean to live in darkness? In the Bible, darkness represents many things: ignorance, sin, self-righteousness etc. Life in darkness is life without Christ. Living in sin is the same as walking in darkness because one’s actions are in concealment and not appropriate to be seen. Darkness is also associated with the powers of evil. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. (John 3:19-20) Darkness also refers to ignorance of the knowledge of God as well as ignorance of the consequences of sin. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom 6:23) God’s Love Now read the following passage of scripture and see how God loves you. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3: 16-17) Life in Light This is a life of a person whose sins are forgiven, of a free person, a life free from the power of sin and for that matter free from the power of Satan, which is different from a life overshadowed with the darkness of God’s eternal wrath. Every light in this world is being radiated from Jesus because He is the Light of this world. He is the true light so whoever does not have Jesus is walking or sitting in darkness. How do we overcome Satan’s darkness and have peace with God? Those in darkness must be brought into God’s marvellous light, which is life in Christ But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light; (1 Peter 2:9) For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light. (Ephesians 5:8) I hope you do not belong to the class who live in darkness, the class of the many who live in error, sin and ignorance. By reading this leaflet, you have known the gospel: you know that there is salvation and that Christ is the Saviour. Don’t continue to live in darkness, receive Him today. You can do so right now. Pray this prayer below speaking each word out from your heart. Dear Lord: I recognise that I am a sinner and need to be saved. I understand that Jesus died in my place and suffered the judgment of all of my sins. I believe that Jesus rose from the dead and He is at the right hand of the father. Lord Jesus, I surrender my Life to you. Come and Live in my heart and be my Lord and saviour. Thank You for saving me. AMEN! Please contact us if you prayed this prayer.
