From Darkness into Light

First Peter 2 says we’re to praise God who has brought us out of darkness and into the light.

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. First Peter 2 says we’re to praise God who has brought us out of darkness and into the light. That reminds me of when our Wheels for the World team was in Peru; they took a wheelchair to the small home where Olga and her sons live. Olga lifted a bedroom curtain to reveal a dark cubicle where 29-year-old Frank with cerebral palsy was lying on a bare mattress. Frank’s older brother lifted him into the wheelchair. Frank began screaming in terror until we backed him out of the dark and into the sunlight flooding through the only window. Frank was different! That’s when our team member shared the Gospel with Olga and she prayed to receive Christ. That day, God transferred Frank and Olga into the kingdom of light, something we get to see often at joniandfriends.org. Visit us today where you can shine the light of Christ to people like Frank.
