From Darkness to Light
The P People love to talk about their salvation. They usually share about it in ways that clearly depict their earlier predicament apart from Christ. Here are just a few examples of statements made by them once they understood the Gospel and put their faith in Christ:
It’s like we were lost in a huge, dark jungle, far away from the trail. But now, by the true God’s words of light, we have found our way out via the trail of truth.
It’s like we were trapped and separated on the other side of a huge river that we couldn’t cross. BUT through the great Intervening Jesus, we have now crossed safely to this side and are now close to Him.
It’s like we were all bound up with ropes. We were all entangled by the false teaching that our forefathers passed on down to us….BUT now Christ has completely untied us, and set us free. We are truly the untied and set free ones!
It’s like Satan had us all locked up in prison with no hope of ever getting out. BUT Jesus bought us with his valuable blood, and took us out of that prison and set us free. We are now in the place of no fear, no judgment, no anger, no accusation, and no danger. It is like we are sitting on the true God’s lap and He is always hugging us.
