At the United Nations (UN) a Jewish Rabbi told the world that all human beings are created by God Almighty, and that He created each and every one of us for a reason. Being a victim of anti-Semitic violence, he is calling on people across the world to fight darkness with light. He said that we have to look at each other as human beings, not by the colour of our skin, or our language or our religion.

I totally agree!  People that don’t know God are looking for something that’s missing in their lives. I’ve heard it said that anyone that doesn’t know our Heavenly Father has a God-shaped void in their heart. Unfortunately, they try to fill that void with all the wrong things instead of what that void was intended to be filled with.

There is only one way for this void to be filled. To have a life of meaning and purpose on this earth, we need to acknowledge and accept that the Son of God, Jesus, died for our sins. If we do so, the Holy Spirit will fill that void in our hearts. He will unite Himself with our innermost being.

When we accept Jesus Christ into our lives, we become a new creation. We are saved from the darkness of this world. Look at 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV):

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

We are no longer who we were! Our spirits have been renewed! The void has been filled by God’s Spirit. We can now ask the Holy Spirit to start changing us according to God’s plan for our lives. This is the only way that we will rid ourselves of the things that we tried to fill the void with.

Child of God, you are a new creation. Your former self has passed away and you are a new creation! Ask the Holy Spirit to change your heart so that you can be the light that shines God’s love to the world. Transform the darkness of the void in people’s lives with the light of God’s love. As God’s child, spread the light of God’s word to a dark and lost world.
