His word is the bright life of man; that's what John chapter 1 tells us. I've come to discover that there's a difference between a right life and a bright life. Scripture makes it clear that there is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end is destructive. This means you can live a right life but still be in the dark. And since you can't see in the dark, you can collide with dangerous obstacles at any moment. This explains why many unbelievers are doing well, despite the fact that they've not received the glorious gospel of Jesus.
Believers who rarely study or practice God's word ignorantly live a right life. They live in bondage, and would often think that it's God's will for them. Their businesses are not moving, their salaries are not getting paid, their marriages and relationships are crawling, their health is unstable. And all that is happening because they're living right. God hasn't called us to live a right life, rather, He called us to live a bright life. 1 Pet 2:9 tells us that we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that we should show forth the praises of God who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous light. Only a bright life can show forth this marvellous light.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; LET STUDYING GOD'S WORD BE IN YOUR ITINERARY FOR EACH DAY, AND YOU'D SEE HOW BRIGHT YOUR ENTIRE LIFE WOULD BECOME. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
