“Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, 'I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
- John 8:12
Our life can be burdened with times of darkness, fear, sins, troubles, and evil. We can feel lost in this darkness, feeling as though there is no way out. The darkness can be overwhelming and crushing. By sending Jesus to our world, God gave us hope. Through Jesus, comes understanding, comes salvation, comes love. Not only does following Jesus help us find the way, but he is the way. He is the answer.
In the book of John, in the first chapter, the term 'light' was referenced. "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it." - John 1:3. So do not despair, and do not worry. Cast your burdens and anxieties aside and fix your eyes on Jesus. By knowing Jesus, we know the light. Through light, we will find life.
Reflection: Do you know of any other bible verses where it references light? How do you think they may relate to God or Jesus?
