John 8:12 - 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.”
“The Light of Life”. Life is a light and you only find it by finding Christ. He is the light of the world, a beacon to help us find our way. imagine being in a boat, traveling in the dark through the fog. This is a thick fog. You can’t hardly see your hand in front of your face, let alone anything in front of the boat. As you navigate through, trying to make sense of where you are, you realize there is no use. Your instruments don’t work and you can’t see anything. All you can do is hope and pray.
Then you see a light. It’s coming from a lighthouse on the shore. You still can’t see what’s around you, but you can see that light. It gives you enough of a bearing of where you are to safely navigate through the dark until you are in the full light of day.
I think many of us have been here in life, wandering through the dark, not knowing where we are or where we are going. Maybe some are still here. We need to be looking to Jesus. He is like the lighthouse, giving us something to latch onto in the dark. And the darker it gets the brighter His light will shine. He will give us what we need to get out of the dark and into the light.
Once we receive Him, His light shines through us and we become the lighthouse to those around us. It is now our job to guide people out of the dark and into the light of life, which is Jesus. It is time to stop wandering like a boat lost in the fog. Let Jesus enter your heart and truly light up your life.
