He is Both Light and Love

Posted on: 7-15-112013

Today’s quote is in honor of Martin Luther King Day:

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

In a world overcome with darkness and hate, we are desperate for light and love.  Amazingly enough, we have an abundance of both of these things with just one word: God. God’s Word tells us that He is both light and love.

“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5

“He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1 John 4:8

In order to overcome the darkness and hate that plagues us, we must turn to the One who can drive them away.  On our own, we are powerless against the darkness and hate.  It’s only when we allow Him to live in us that we have the power, His power, to be the light that destroys the darkness and the love that destroys the hate.
