The Light Of The World

John 1:5 “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.”

As a small child, I was often afraid of things. One of my greatest fears was darkness. I was scared to death to sleep in the dark, and a simple night light was not nearly enough to dispel my fear. I slept with as many lights on as I could reach.

My mom and dad often asked me what I was afraid of, but I really couldn’t answer the question. I just knew that I was afraid that something might be in the darkness that I couldn’t see. And it could get me!

jesusThe Bible indicates there are forces that are visible and invisible. Some of those forces are evil. On some level, I think everyone has a certain apprehension and fear of things that they can’t see. For most of us, thinking about what’s in the future creates some of that same fear. The same kind of fear that a child may have when they don’t know what exists in the darkness.

The Bible tells us that Jesus is the light of the world.  Yes, the light that shines in the darkness is Jesus Christ. Our promise is that the darkness will never be capable of putting out that light. That’s something that you can hold fast to in the darkness of the world.

Yes, He is a night light you can claim as your own.

Have a blessed day!
