On most nights, when you’re away from city lights, it’s pretty dark…so dark, in fact, that you can hardly see anything. You can’t read, walk on a pathway, or do much of anything else associated with daily living.
Try taking a walk in the park or in the mountains on a dark night – pitch dark. But on the nights when the moon is full, it acts like a beacon, a spotlight. Suddenly, things are revealed. You can actually make your way around and function. It’s like someone turned on a light by which to live.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” I don’t think he could be more graphic than that. Darkness keeps you from acting. Jesus – the light of the world – will walk with you, becoming like a light on a dark night. Oh, he may not appear as a physical light per se, but Christ brings light to reveal the pitfalls of bad choices and the pathway to good ones. That allows you to step forward in quiet confidence.
I pray the light of Christ fills your life, illuminating your path, providing you with peace, hope, and love.
