come into the light

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

This world we live in is so dark.

There are always evil people trying to be & do evil things to us & with us.

(That sounds a little paranoid, but you know what I mean.)

All we have to do is look around & see how people are being so incredibly sinful.

And all we have to do is look inside ourselves to see plenty of sinfulness.

But Jesus says if we follow Him, not only are our sins forgiven, but light & life pours into our lives.

Is there anybody reading this who could stand a little light in their lives.

Anybody reading this who needs to cast off the dark, dead way(s) they're living & move into an existence that is really & truly living?

Jesus says here that if we follow Him we won't be living in that dark place we are now, that ours will live in a light & open place.

How many of us live in darkness right now?

We all know who we are.

Come out of that dark place by believing what Jesus said about Himself & us...

     ...that the power of the Holy Spirit will empower us to turn away from the darkness we live in...

   ...and then let's decide to follow what He said in His Word, & in the things He will say to us as we walk along with Him.

Come out of the darkness into the Light.
