I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not remain in darkness – John 12:46, MEV
I don’t like darkness. When I turn off the light, the place is in pitch darkness and I have to wait until my eyes adjust before I carefully find my way through the darkness to the staircase. There is something oppressive and unsettling about darkness. And when you turn on the light, that darkness is gone. The light chases away the darkness. The room is flooded with light and you can see what is there. That’s another thing about darkness, you can’t see what’s there. You have to be careful you don’t bump into things.
The world was a large dark room and Jesus was the Light which came into it. He came to shine in our hearts and in our lives. Once we put our faith and trust in Him, we will leave the darkness behind. It will no longer have power over us. We won’t have to feel our way around in life, trying not to bump into trouble or temptations or stumble or even fall anymore. We look to Jesus, our Light and allow Him to guide us in every area of our lives.
Today, make the decision to come to Jesus. Let His light shine in your life. Don’t remain in the dark any longer.
