Were you ever afraid of the dark as a child? Many children are, you know. For some, that fear can linger even many years after childhood.

Welcome to “Mornings with Bishop Robert” — thanks for joining me … I’m grateful that you’re here. My goal is to introduce people to the Jesus they never knew, and help them get to know Him and His word personally – and better ! If our time together today speaks to your heart, then let me invite you to like, subscribe and share it with a friend!

We are naturally created to enjoy light. Perhaps it is because God is light, and we were created in His image. He has created us to be naturally drawn to Him.


I’ve heard it said that there is a “God-shaped hole” in our hearts, so to speak. That is to say that, until God has been invited to come and fill our hearts, there will always be SOMETHING missing. We may not know that the “something” is God, but we will know that our lives, our hearts, are not complete.

Without God as our light, we search for things that will satisfy us in the darkness. Drinking to excess will only blind the senses for so long. Sexual gratification without true love becomes boring. Drugs bend the senses away from the pain of loneliness, but they wear off. Eventually the things that you hoped would help you escape end up entrapping you. Like a strong acid, addictions destroy and cause pain to whatever they touch. Once sex ceases to be your servant, it becomes a very cruel master indeed.

In His amazing love, God has called us out of the darkness and into His wonderful light. When we stop searching for solutions in the dark and begin to search in HIs light, the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness” as He created the world will shine in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Then we, who were walking in darkness will see the great light of His love and grace.

And light heals. It truly does!

One example I can give has been invented by one of my friends. He uses light in a very specific way to heal brain-related injuries and diseases. It’s basically shining light on darkness because the brain tissue turns into a dark matter when it’s diseased or atrophied, and you can actually heal it by shining the right amount of light on it. He’s currently developing the uses for that technology that will allow it to cure diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other sorts of brain dementia.

While light can heal your brain, it is also true the THE LIGHT can heal your spirit. He Who is light calls us to the light. God calls us to Himself. And, when we come to Him, He begins a process in us of turning that which is darkness in us into light. You see, God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. Not only is He our light, He is our salvation.

He invites us to walk in the light, as He is in the light; as we do we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. As we walk in His light He forms us into His image, and heals us.

God invites you to “turn on the light” inside of you. When He enters your life, He will turn that which is darkness into light.

Come to the light! You’ll love it.
