The Bible uses light as a symbol and metaphor for various things. Christ Himself is the light of the world. He illuminates the darkness and the corners and hiding places we all find ourselves in.
This is where it starts in our story. Jesus loves the individual. When we fall into depression or our behavior causes us and others problems, He is there with His warm light.
John 8:12 says, "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.’”
If you feel you are in darkness, that life is just too difficult, consider that Jesus tells you that He is the source of peace and light. If this is too complex for you to understand, ask Jesus in a prayer to help you understand, and to come to you in your need.
In John 8, Jesus begins by telling a group of people that He is the light of the world. He is telling them that He was sent by His Father to rescue all of us from darkness.
You might consider today that He is telling you this, and that you are His audience of one.
Let’s pray. Lord, thank you for sending Your Son as light into our dark world. We are eternally grateful. Amen.
