Perhaps you have had the experience of turning on the kitchen light after a long night, only to see some cockroaches scurry across the kitchen floor, finding shelter from the light. It’s an obvious fact: cockroaches hate the light. They love the darkness.
Cockroaches aren’t alone. Sinners love the darkness and flee the light. They love the cover of darkness to enjoy their sin. Followers of Christ used to walk in these ways, but Christ has changed them: “You were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light” (Ephesians 5:8).
