Good morning.


South Africans face loadshedding regularly. Loadshedding is defined as "action to reduce the load on something, especially the interruption of an electricity supply to avoid excessive load on the generating plant."


God, out of His inexplicable love for mankind, introduced loadshedding long before the invention of electricity. His loadshedding plan does not deal with the burden of generating electricity, rather, it deals with reducing the load of sin we bear.


God's loadshedding plan also has different stages.


• Conviction of sin - The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. (John 1:9)

• Salvation - Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12)

• Baptism - “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?” (Acts 8:36)

• Baptism in Holy Spirit - But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses (Acts 1:8)


While the loadshedding South Africans face leads to increasing darkness, God's loadshedding plan leads to increased light.


Today, "if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
