Get Away From the Darkness, If You Surrender You Will Live

By: Curtis Ophoven 0 Comments   7/25/2011

Perhaps you are sick of the pain that results from chasing the next high to escape the emptiness of the previous one.

Perhaps you have tasted darkness in your life and you are sick of believing its lies that repeatedly destroy your life. 

Perhaps you have been a victim to darkness that has drawn you in with appealing thrills that only result in destroying part of your life. 

It’s time to call evil what it is. It’s time to reject the darkness and the destruction that it brings.

It’s time to reject the lies of the darkness that lead to temptation that destroy lives. The darkness only succeeds because it has not been exposed for what it is. It’s time to call it out, hold it responsible and demand it to leave.

It’s time to get away from the darkness and save your life. I love the new song by the Newsboys “Save Your Life”, here is the video, in which they sing "if you surrender you will live" “get away from the darkness” “it’s gonna save your live”, so true this is. 

Darkness presents itself as something adventurous and liberating from God's rules as if we could be having more fun without them. Like everyone, I have believed some of these lies and have comes to regret it.

Darkness is losing every day because it is being exposed for what is really is, lies that result in destroyed lives.  If you are sick of being sick and watching your family being destroyed, then get away from the darkness.  If you want to live, turn to Christ because he is the way, the truth and the life.

There is a passage that says those who hate Christ, love death (Proverbs 8:36).

After years of study and observing the pain that darkness brings, I now understand this verse. If you reject Christ your life on earth will be empty and his wrath remains on you because the "wages of sin is death". The only way that anyone could make this decision while understanding the consequences is if they loved death.

Life is worth living because Christ made a way for us to be saved from eternal death by believing in him. Death was brought into the world by sin (Romans 5:12) and it is an enemy of God, but even its power has been crushed by the blood of Christ. 

If you want to taste living water, rather than the poison that darkness contains, then make the choice today and get away from the darkness – it’s gonna save your life.  If you surrender to Christ, you will live - both in this life and the next.

Right From Wrong

In a culture that rejects the concepts of truth and morality. Josh McDowell offers hope and provides families and the church with a sound, thorough, biblical and workable method to clearly understand and defend the truth. Josh tells us that there is an absolute truth and can be understood and used to teach what is right and what is wrong and why is it so important to know the difference.

Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

David Platt reflects a wider move of God through which He is stirring His people to live radically for Him to finish discipline all nations (Mt. 24:14 and Mt 28:18-20). Platt urges us to discover Jesus as our sole treasure, to lay aside everything that keeps us from pursuing Him above all else, and to realize that "It's Not About Me." This is the complete opposite message that the world is telling us, that we are the center of the universe and we should live for our personal desires and ambitions without a care in the world for anyone else. The maturity of evil is complete selfishness, while the maturity of righteousness is complete abandonment of selfishness. The harvest is ready.

What’s So Great About Christianity

This book is a response to the culture and media that continues to lie about Christianity. This is a passionate and intellectual presentation of the strengths and historical truths of Christianity. No other religion has brought the world greater rewards than Christianity, because no other religion contains a greater love given to the world by its creator. Without the unquestionable result Christianity, the world would not have been able to sustain itself and would have already been overtaken by death. We live in a time when atheism is attacking Christianity. This book reminds us that Christianity sustains the world.
