Unlike forest trails, which are quickly overgrown, the path of light and the path of darkness have many clear markings. The first is identified by an active faith, bold confession, and absolute, sold-out dependence on Jesus; the second, by a divided heart, hiding one's sin, and self-reliance. In spite of these clear markings, we may trick ourselves about which path we're walking. Just because the path of light leads through a dark area doesn't mean we've sinned. Likewise, temporal ease doesn't mean that we're not under a sentence of death. Where are you today?
