We see even in the early chapters of Genesis that Satan has always tried to prevent mankind from obtaining the purpose that God created us for. In this sermon Mr. Smith shows many of the places the Bible shows the contrast between God's way and Satan's way by using the terms light and darkness. If we strive to continue to walk in the light God has shown to us then we will obtain the glory God has planned for our future.
