Follow the Light

Follow the Light

Our eyes are drawn to light. Light in all its forms—a pinprick of light that illuminates a dark room, moving light, changing light—draws our attention. Jesus said that He is the light of the world. Are our eyes as tuned to spiritual light as they are to physical light? Do we strain to catch a glimpse of Jesus, the Light of the world, whose presence stands out like life-giving light in a dark world? Look for Him to go before you today, and follow where He leads.

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.”—John 8:12

Prayer: Jesus, sometimes the way before us seems dark, and the world at times seems devoid of light. Light up our darkness, we pray! Show us the light of Your presence, and give us courage to follow Your lead, for God’s glory and the good of Your people, amen.
