THE HIGHWAY OF HOLINESS

By

Shelby G. Floyd

One of the favorite figures of speech applied to the church is that of a way, a path, and a road that leads from one place to another.

DO ALL RELIGIOUS ROADS LEAD TO HEAVEN?

1 Cor 15-58

There is plenty of work in the congregation for each one of us to do if we will do it.

Light

Light and darkness are antipodal. We live in a physical world of darkness and light. Modern technology enables us with better light to see and penetrate the darkness. Also in the spiritual realm Christ enables us to let our light shine in the world:

Matthew 5:14-16
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.

NIV

The Bible teaches that God is light and in him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5). God is the one who created the light in the beginning and he said it is good (Genesis 1:3-4). Light is good because it has the qualities to dispel darkness and give direction and discovery. Continue reading “WALKING IN THE LIGHT OF LIFE”
