Will the Darkness Win?
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it—John 1:5.
Every single person, at some point in his or her life, goes through a time of darkness. Whether it be a darkness of failure, darkness of sin, or the darkness of sorrow, there’s no escaping the fact that darkness is all around us. This darkness causes many to wonder, “Will the darkness win? Will evil prevail?”
The answer to that question was given more than 2,000 years ago when Jesus Christ was born into the world. To many in that day, it looked like the darkness was going to win. And while most people were afraid of the darkness of oppression by the Roman Empire, Jesus opened their eyes to the reality of something even darker... the darkness of their own sin.
But in the midst of that darkness, God sent Jesus into the world to shine a great light... a light so bright and so overwhelming that those who experienced it were forever changed.
God sent a bold answer all those years ago that while the darkness may sometimes seem overwhelming, goodness will ultimately triumph over evil. Jesus was the light of the world, and whoever believes in Him already has victory over sin and death. Trust Him for that victory today.
