Jesus came with His light so you would not have to continue being controlled by the darkness in your wounded soul. Let me prove it to you. Read this statement from Jesus in John 12:46 “I have come as a Light into the world, so that whoever believes in Me [whoever cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] may not continue to live in darkness”.
Wow! Jesus actually came as a light to this world so that we could be healed and no longer controlled by the darkness in our inner man! In Luke 11:34-36, Jesus says, “Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye (your conscience) is sound and fulfilling its office, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound and is not fulfilling its once, your body is full of darkness. Be careful, therefore, that the light that is in you is not darkness. If then your entire body is illuminated, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright [with light], as when a lamp with its bright rays gives you light.”
According to this passage, your eye – or your soul – will not be “sound” and “fulfilling its office,” if “your body is full of darkness.” In other words, if you are full of wounds that were created by sin, then you are full of darkness and your mind, your will and emotions will not be fulfilling their offices properly.
This same scripture says that when your whole body is filled with the light of Christ then your eye and your soul man will be completely “sound and fulfilling its office!” That means your mind will think right thoughts and make balanced God-directed decisions. When your whole body is filled with light, your emotions will be sound and properly fulfilling their office. God created your emotions. They are supposed to be functioning properly. You are to experience joy and not depression.
You can have Holy anger in righteousness but not rage. When all is as it should be, you will experience passion but not lust. According to this scripture, when your whole body is filled with light, then every part of your soul will be sound and fulfilling its office. is includes your will, your ability to choose right and wrong. Your ability to make good decisions will dramatically increase, and thus, so will your success and prosperity in every area of your life!
The Light of Christ has the power to heal your soul man and cause your soul man to be completely sound. Remember, Malachi 4 says “the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in His wings and His beams…”!
