The very first thing one does upon awaking is to open one's eyes and deal with the light. Some of us pull the blanket back over our head to shut it out; some of us groan and stretch and have a good yawn; and some of us are grateful to see a new day, ready to go and looking forward to the opportunities and possibilities this light exposes.  The world is divided into two camps--those who welcome the light and those who do not.  The spiritual, eternal world is much the same in that it also has two camps--those that believe in God, face His light and embrace fellowship with Him, and those who do not, virtually pulling the blanket of deception and lies over their spiritual eyes refusing to believe that God is.  In the Bible, God defines Who He is -- the Alpha and Omega, the Eternally Existing Creator of All Things, the Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.  Jesus came in the flesh to explain what we cannot fully comprehend, that God the Father, the Great I AM, is the eternal everything.  Those who believe escape condemnation and eternal separation from God.  Those who do not believe are "condemned already" according to St. John, and are actively choosing to reject the truth of God thereby rapidly running along a path that takes them eternally away from heaven and directly into the arms of the Father of Lies, Satan himself.    Scripture is clear that the first thing every man, woman, and child needs is to wake up and know that there is a God in Heaven, and that He is Who the Bible says He is.  First, you must believe that He is.  (Hebrews 11:6)  Then you can embrace the light, enjoy the day, and find the way, the truth, and the life, and have that life abundantly.  First Things First....
