Jesus is changing me. How about you?

The Lofty Cockroach.

I stepped out in the early morning dawn to take in the morning air.  I had just replaced the automatic lights over the garage.  Though it was daylight, the light came on when I turned the corner.  Without thinking I backed around the corner to be out of the light just a bit.  Now why did I do that? 

Pondering my action, I thought of the cockroach.  When the lights come on their little legs get into that blur of motion toward the darkness.  Kind of like what I did.  Then I remembered the Lord’s words: “This is the verdict:  Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.   Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.   But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”

Man is given to rule over his domain (this world).  And consider how we look down on the lowly cockroach.  Yet how is what he does different from what the lofty wicked do with the One who Rules over us?  And aren’t the wicked considered as vile betrayers of righteousness?  And if the end of any roach which doesn’t scurry into darkness is crushed.  What will be the end of those who hate the Word of God?

By His Grace.
