Live in the light (1)


"I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." Jn 8:12 NKJV


A pastor writes: "Have you ever heard the term achluophobia? It is the fear of darkness...Being in complete darkness is unnerving. It induces a sense of helplessness. And yet physical darkness is nothing compared to emotional, relational, and spiritual darkness." Today you may feel like you're in a dark place with no way out: 

  • "My girlfriend left me for another guy." Or, 

  • "I'm probably headed toward divorce. My husband has been cheating on me." 

  • Or, "I'm depressed and cry for no reason. When will the blues go away?" 

  • Or, "I'm wrestling with a terrible illness, and I'm basically a shut-in. I am in a dark place and need help." 

If that's your story, there is help, and there is hope. Jesus said, "1 am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." If you're willing to turn to Him today, you will discover that He can illuminate your path and show you the way out of the darkness you're in. When you turn on the light, darkness has to leave. And Jesus is the light that removes our spiritual and emotional darkness. 


Notice that Jesus didn't say He is a light, or one among many, but instead the light. He didn't say He is light just for some, but the light of the world. Regardless of whether you live in London, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Toronto, or Timbuktu, Jesus is your answer. If you're living in darkness, He is inviting you to come to Him and step into the light.


Live in the light Step into the light.
