Supernatural light

Supernatural light


“For God, who commanded the light to shine out

 of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give

the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in

the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Cor. 4:6

Until, then, this supernatural light of God

enters into the soul, a man has no saving

knowledge of Jehovah. He may . . .

  say his prayers,

  read his Bible,  attend preaching,

  observe ordinances,

  bestow all his goods to feed the poor,

  or give his body to be burned;

but he is as ignorant of God as

the cattle that graze in the fields!

He may—call himself a Christian, and be

thought such by others—talk much about

Jesus Christ, hold a sound creed—maintain

a consistent profession—pray at a prayer

meeting with fluency and apparent feeling,

stand up in a pulpit and contend earnestly

for the doctrines of grace—excel hundreds

of God’s children in zeal, knowledge and


And yet, if this ray of supernatural light has

never shone into his soul—he is only twofold

more the child of hell than those who make

no profession!
