20. The Light Of Life
Verse Of The Day: May 20
John 8:12 NLT
“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.””
I think everyone would agree that the world is a pretty dark place. Some parts are worse than others but it can be very discouraging when you hear about the corruption in different countries. But then again, we understand that sin has corrupted all of our hearts.
It is always hard to see where you're going in the dark. Jesus is the light of the world. He makes things plain and easy to see. If we follow Him, we won't have to walk in darkness. We don't have to lose our way in this life. We can have a sense of purpose and direction.
Following Jesus leads you to life in every aspect. You gain a clear view of the choices to make in relationships, work dealings and matters of your personal life. You don't have to stumble around in the dark when you follow Jesus.
Christianity should be a path that leads to life with a clear bright view of the future.
How bright is my outlook? Can I see where God is leading me?
Jesus, You are the light of the world. Following You is easier than other path in this life. Fill my heart with Your light and lead me in the way everlasting. Amen.
