"When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
Isn't this a great verse to read this morning! Just yesterday I was talking about the doom and gloom of darkness, and that we don't need to worry about the darkness, because we have a light...and here He is!
Here is why this verse is important to me today- Jesus says that whoever follows him will NEVER walk in darkness. Never. That means that we don't need to fear that darkness that is trying to press in. You know what I'm thinking this morning about that darkness pressing in? That it is an illusion, that it is a tool of the devil, trying to trick us into being sad and depressed, and trying to convince us that we belong in the darkness in the first place. But today's verse! Today's verse tells us the key for pushing that darkness back and away. Jesus is the light of life, and all we need to do is remember that, and hold to that, and when we feel that darkness starting to inch closer, we can call on Jesus' Name and the darkness will flee.
"For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, " Colossians 1:13
"I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness." John 12:46
Thank God for his son, Jesus, that we may never need to be a part of the darkness ever again. Thank God for His Light to guide our way and fill our hearts with joy.
