God’s name is Jehovah in the Old Testament, while His name is Jesus in the New Testament. Why are God’s names different? I came to understand the reason after reading a book.
January 8, 2018 – Matthew 6:22-23
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of light. But if your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness!
– Matthew 6:22-23
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
The eye is the window of the soul. As is known to all, if our eyes can see, our whole body is full of light; if not, the whole person will fall into darkness. If our heart is occupied by worldly fame and money and moves away from God, then we will live in darkness completely. Perhaps you have a very high social status and great wealth, but if you do not have God in your heart, you will live in darkness even if you follow God. As the word of God says: “A world in man’s heart with no place for God is dark, empty without hope. … Only when man receives the salvation of God and His provision of life to them can the needs, yearning to explore, and spiritual emptiness of man be resolved. If the people of a country or a nation are unable to receive the salvation and care of God, then such a country or nation will tread the road to ruin, toward darkness, and shall be annihilated by God.” From, we know that to live in the light, every country, nation or man should and accept God’s sovereignty and arrangement. Otherwise, they will surely fall into darkness and finally be annihilated by God.
