This Pearl Is Valued At $100 Million, But Does Not Compare To Jesus Christ.
The word light has two meanings. One is regarding the weight of something. A 5 lb. weight is light compared to a 50 lb. weight. The burden of guilt is heavy, and the forgiveness of Christ for one’s sins makes that guilt light, and in fact, once forgiven, we only bear the weight of that guilt in our memories – we do not carry it as a burden any more. Christ says that his burden (yoke) is light.
There is another light, and this one is utilized by everyone. It is the light that comes from the sun; from a lamp or a torch. What does that light do? It allows one to see so that they can function in their movement, their work and all that they do. Jesus Christ is said to be the “light of the world”. We also know that there are blind people, and light does nothing for them to see. So how does a blind person benefit from Christ being the light of the world?
Christ is a spiritual light. Christ is truth. Christ is the Word of God. Christ is “the way, the truth and the life”. His light is a light that makes the spiritually blind see their sin and repent of it, and subsequently they embrace Christ as their Savior. He does not give that light to everyone; that is obvious. There are those who, as the saying goes; “none so blind as those who will not see.” They are the ones whose hearts have been hardened by God to not see His grace and mercy. As Christ said; “The blind leading the blind, and both will fall into a ditch.”
Without the light of Christ to guide a person’s thinking, words and actions, they will continually suffer in eternity, although on this earth and in this worldly system, they may prosper. As the Psalmist says, the wicked’s eyes bulge with abundance, and he walks confidently and is not troubled. He even lives a long life. But, as David said; “I went into the House of the Lord, and then I saw their (the wicked’s) end. Their end is an eternal Hell separated from God’s love and mercy FOREVER.
It is therefore the recommendation of this writer; in conformity with the Bible, to recommend that everyone choose life. Repent of your sins; believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, dead and buried, who descended into Hell, and on the third day arose from the dead and ascended into Heaven at the right hand of God to rule from His throne for ever and ever.
