I watched a TV show the other day of a guy who remodeled a hundred-year-old lighthouse. It had been in disrepair for decades, but he bought it at auction and poured a lot of money to restore it to its glory days. When he was done it was fully functional again. The light that was given off by that lighthouse is capable of saving hundreds of ships and thousands of lives. The light inside of you is stronger than that lighthouse. The light of Christ in you can save lives for eternity.
“In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.”
Before Christ came, the world was overcome by the darkness of sin and evil. The prince of darkness, Satan ruled it. Once Jesus came darkness could not withstand the light of Christ, and that light became the life that is within us. When we start to follow Jesus that light comes inside of us and darkness, no longer has a stranglehold on us.
Light Your Path
Is the light of Christ shining brightly in your life? Does it shine on the path that you are walking? Psalms tells us that His Word is a light unto our path and a lamp unto our feet. The light of Christ illuminates the darkness and prevents us from tripping. It also gives us a sense of safety as we continue on our journey to heaven when there is light the fear of darkness fads away.
Jesus gives us life. It is unlike anything else the world has to offer. It not only provides us with a sense of purpose, but it permeates every area of our life. We no longer have to fear anything that is thrown at us because it cannot overcome us. Let that light shine out of you. Others are wandering around in the darkness, searching. When the light of Christ shines out of you, it draws them in.
