Matthew 4:16-17 the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned. From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Have you seen a great light? If you are sitting in darkness, any light might look great, when compared to the darkness. Recently I heard someone telling how they wanted to see a new movie, simply because of the actor who appeared in it, and it seemed to me that we are still looking for a great light.
