Time to Turn On the Light
“I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life”—John 8:12.
When you’re staying in an unfamiliar place, do you ever awaken in the night and get up without turning on the light? Next thing you know, you’re tripping over a suitcase or walking into a table. The last time that happened to me, man, did it hurt! But when you turn on the light, everything is clear.
Well, too many folks are trying to make it through life in the dark—spiritual darkness—and a lot of unnecessary falls and self-inflicted pain take place. Yet amazingly, most people in the dark feel they’re doing just fine on their own. It’s really kind of pitiful.
But Jesus tells us He’s the Light of the world. He means He is the enlightenment about God, man, and life. Otherwise, we’re in the dark spiritually. We keep stumbling, falling, and eventually, feeling frustrated by it all. Hey, isn't it time for some of you folks to turn on the light, really see God, and understand life? If you do, everything will make sense.
