Diwali, or the Festival of Lights, begins tonight in Gujarat and throughout the world as Hindus celebrate the victory of light over darkness and good over evil. The festival is a time of worship, of visiting friends and family, of giving gifts. Candles are lit throughout the house, and fireworks will be lit across the country.
Hindus live their lives in spiritual darkness. Is it any wonder that they so love Diwali, the “Festival of Light”?
Pray that this Diwali Hindus will know the truth found in 2 Corinthians 4:6: “For God, who said, ‘Light shall shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.”
