Turn from Darkness to Light

Preachers Corner https://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

The Lord came to Paul on the Damascus Road and you know he was never the same again. The Lord made a change in him! You could say he turned from darkness to light. The bible says that we are all sinners before a holy God and if we’re in sin we are in darkness. Well, there is good news in the Gospel! Jesus Christ came that we might turn from the darkness of our sin to light. Jesus came to bring in salvation for all mankind. He went to the cross where he took our sin on himself that we might be forgiven and welcomed into God’s presence, Heaven. Amazing Love!

Bible Verses Read:-

Acts 26:8-23Why should it be judged a thing incredible in your sight if God raises the dead?*I* indeed myself thought that I ought to do much against the name of Jesus the Nazaraean.10 Which also I did in Jerusalem, and myself shut up in prisons many of the saints, having received the authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death I gave my vote.

11 And often punishing them in all the synagogues, I compelled them to blaspheme. And, being exceedingly furious against them, I persecuted them even to cities out [of our own land].12 And when, [engaged] in this, I was journeying to Damascus, with authority and power from the chief priests,13 at mid-day, on the way, I saw, O king, a light above the brightness of the sun, shining from heaven round about me and those who were journeying with me.14 And, when we were all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? [it is] hard for thee to kick against goads.15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, *I* am Jesus whom *thou* persecutest:16 but rise up and stand on thy feet; for, for this purpose have I appeared to thee, to appoint thee to be a servant and a witness both of what thou hast seen, and of what I shall appear to thee in,17 taking thee out from among the people, and the nations, to whom *I* send thee,18 to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive remission of sins and inheritance among them that are sanctified by faith in me.19 Whereupon, king Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision;20 but have, first to those both in Damascus and Jerusalem, and to all the region of Judaea, and to the nations, announced that they should repent and turn to God, doing works worthy of repentance.

21 On account of these things the Jews, having seized me in the temple, attempted to lay hands on and destroy me.22 Having therefore met with [the] help which is from God, I have stood firm unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying nothing else than those things which both the prophets and Moses have said should happen,23 [namely,] whether Christ should suffer; whether he first, through resurrection of [the] dead, should announce light both to the people and to the nations.
