“Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “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
To me, this verse is not only encouraging and beautiful, it is a promise to us. (Reminder that these words were written in red. This means that Jesus, our savior, spoke THESE words to YOU and ME). That’s amazing.
As followers of Christ, we always carry HIS light, but through our actions, our obedience and through LOVE, we have the free will to determine how much we let His light shine.
Being completely devoted to following Him means we’re also responsible for displaying His light with us in EVERY situation. Through our walk and our words, we are the ones who determine how much His light shines in who we are. The more we seek Him, the more we will find him and His light will ONLY shine brighter through us.
No one ever says “Who turned up the darkness?!” It is always “Who turned down (or up) the LIGHT!”
So no matter what darkness is around us, HIS light will always shine brighter.
He is with us and working through us all the time which means no matter where we go, we should be going into every single situation with HIM at the center.
All it takes is one small spark to start a fire and then that fire can spread at a rapid pace. I pray that my fire burns so bright, there is no denying HIM to anyone who crosses my path. Where ever I walk, I want HIS LIGHT to take center stage.
