1 John 1:5 (NET) Now this is the gospel message we have heard from him and announce to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all.
At just 19 years old, Damian was already caught in the grip of drug addiction, his life spiraling downwards. Arrested three times, he found himself serving a five-year prison sentence. With no skills, limited education, and hailing from a struggling family, his prospects seemed bleak. Even his own mother harbored doubts about his future, fearing he might end up committing even graver offenses upon his release.
But then, something incredible happened. In prison, Damian accepted the Lord Jesus Christ. It was a turning point. Suddenly, he discovered a newfound ability to concentrate and be productive. Upon his release, he committed to education, working his way through school and advancing to college. Remarkably, he not only excelled but emerged as the top graduate in his class. What’s more, he took on leadership roles in his church community.
By the time Damian completed college, many of his childhood friends had met tragic fates – some had passed away, others had disappeared, and a few had returned to prison. Damian, on the other hand, had encountered a Light that altered the course of his life. It banished the darkness that had shrouded his heart since childhood.
God embodies light. When you allow Him into your life, transformation, and glory are inevitable. This is the essence of the gospel: Through Christ, God’s light illuminates your life.
When you invite Jesus into every facet of your life, you’re ushering in light, and darkness has no choice but to recede.
As you step into today, make a conscious decision to let Jesus reign over every aspect of your existence. Prepare for a magnificent transformation.
Prayer: Thank God for lovingly allowing us to be partakers in His light.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
