“Living Like This” ( Galatians 5: 21, NIV ) by Carley Evans

“those who live like this – [in drunkenness, orgies and the like] – will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

Drunkenness, orgies and the like are obviously fruits of darkness. In God, there is no darkness at all. In our adversary, there is no light. We are called to walk in the Light.

Some of you may remember the film WAIT UNTIL DARK in which a young blind woman is attacked by a ruthless thief in her home. Before he comes – yes, she knows he’s coming – she takes precautions to make her home completely dark. She unscrews the fuses in the fuse box, she breaks the one light source she needs as he arrives. She even remembers the hall lights, and has a little girl break them with a broom when light from them spills under the closed doorway. But she forgets the refrigerator bulb which somehow escapes the fuse box – I know – I didn’t write the script. At any rate, when he comes, the thief cleverly opens the refrigerator and now can see his victim, who must somehow crawl behind the refrigerator and unplug it. Needless to say, she lives.

My points? 1) Total darkness is difficult to achieve. 2) Only a small amount of light is needed to overcome darkness.

3) In God is no darkness. 4) Walk in His Light – the Light who overcomes the dark.
