Why will some not believe????
“The people that walked in the darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined.” Isaiah 9:2.
God put me in the presence of death last night. I think it is to get me out of the shadows of loving Him. To stop being a stealth christian and to boldly claim the Gospel when He puts me in a place to do so. People die. At times, we can be very close to death, maybe not ours, but people you don’t even know. I try not to talk at all, or very little when in the presence of death. There is almost always a loved one that does not believe it could be their loved one, no matter the age or health condition of that loved one. I am a good listener and I discern and do make judgments of the family. Hang on, before you stop reading, consider this, judge: to form an opinion about (something or someone) after careful thought.

A Light that shines to a dark and dying world. We all come under the shadow of death, it is the way we were born. We can all come into the light and fear death no more. Just look for it and seek it. God is already seeking you, us. God never runs away from us, we are the ones that are running. The Light of this dead world, Jesus Christ…
