#94 The War for Your Eye
Continuously updated, this collection of Martha‘s writings is for all in search of true intimacy with Christ.
Matthew 6:22, 23 NASB
The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you becomes darkness, how great is the darkness!
We completely wear and carry light or darkness within, according to our chosen master.
Though it is a spiritual matter, light and dark are down here with us, all around us, all the time. And both working at once.
God versus mammon is an ugly war over your heart’s love, down in the most earthy places, in the complex recesses of the heart and through tedious paths of everyday life. The glamour of sin – this evil world-system – is courting your love in the disguise of the desirable.
And…God is ever shining His Light on you, giving you the chance to SEE the Real and love HIM more than anything the world offers. We simply cannot have both—the world and the kingdom.
To prefer the darkness is to lose the light by blindness.
