Spurgeon: Salvation finds us in the dark, but it does not leave us there


Knowing God through His Word ... Day by Day

The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid? —Psalm 27:1 ESV

Spurgeon, in the Treasury of David:

Salvation finds us in the dark, but it does not leave us there; it gives light to those who sit in the valley of the shadow of death. After conversion our God is our joy, comfort, guide, teacher, and in every sense our light;

  • he is light within,
  • light around,
  • light reflected from us,
  • and light to be revealed to us.

Note, it is not said merely that the Lord gives light, but that he “is” light; nor that he gives salvation, but that he is salvation; he, then, who by faith has laid hold upon God has all covenant blessings in his possession.
