John 8:12 Light of Life #161
I like halloween, a lot. I love seeing the little kids all dressed up and on occasion I like dressing up myself.
However, over the years, I have also realized what a dark day it can be. As Colby and I go on runs or walks around the neighborhood, we are always so surprised with how many people go all out with their decor. It’s dark. Really dark. I could be wrong, but it seems more people decorate for halloween than Christmas.
John 8:12 says, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” I am so thankful that Jesus is light. He is life. Think about a dark room. If you were to turn on a dimmed light, it would outshine all the darkness right? That is what Jesus does. Any glimpse of him outshines all darkness.
In the middle of what can be a dark day, and in the middle of what has been a dark election, Jesus is still the light of the world. Those who follow him “will never walk in darkness.” Instead they will have “the light of life.”
When you follow God, you will never have to walk in darkness again. Don’t let the distractions of the world or what is going on around you keep you from focusing on the truth which is LIGHT and LIFE!
