“I am the light of the world.
No one who follows me stumbles around in the darkness.
I provide plenty of light to live in.”
Have you ever stumbled around in the night looking for a light switch? It’s hard not to bang & bump into things that can’t be seen. It’s very difficult to remember exactly where everything is and so much noise is produced that everyone is woken up. If only there was a small amount of light things would become so much easier. Once we have some light things becomes visible and are easily found. Peace & tranquility return quickly.
This week’s verse lets us know the value of having true light in our lives. Jesus reminds us that He is this light to everyone. Without Jesus people will clumsily stumble around in darkness trying to find their own way through life. With Jesus we’re guaranteed there’s no stumbling, no darkness & plenty of light. Following Jesus means we can live our lives His way: productive, purposeful and with peace & tranquility.
There is plenty of light for our lives when we follow Jesus. There are no dark places where His light cannot shine & overcome [John 1:5]. His light never leaves or abandons us [Hebrews 13:5]. His light shines through our lives causing others to glorify God in Heaven [Matthew 5:16].
So, this week lets not stumble around in darkness. Let’s take this powerful promise from Jesus & enter fully into His Life of true light. By following Him & what He says in His Word, we’ll become sure-footed & stable. Our future will be visible. The road ahead will become more productive & purposeful filling up with His peace & tranquility.
