Dark vs Light

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
                                                                    -John 1:5

Where is the darkness around you? Maybe it is in your family, your neighborhood, the part of town your scared of, your workplace, or inside of you. The darkness is like a force, it feels threatening. It is threatening. But here’s the thing about darkness, it doesn’t do well in light. It can’t stand up to it at all.

In this new year, let’s be a people who carry the light, which is Christ, into the dark places of our own lives, our friends and families, and our communities. Let’s be like the old Sunday School song:

This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.

Where the light of Jesus shines in and through the darkness there is healing, hope, and renewal. So don’t live a small story this year. If you are in Christ, you have the light. Take the cover off of it and use it!

Where are the dark places that God is calling you to share his light?

“Give me Christ or else I die!”

  1. Sometimes the darkness overtakes us. Sometimes we stumble about looking for the light, all the while knowing that all we have to do is open our eyes to see the light once again. Sometimes we just prefer to keep our eyes closed. Sometimes we wonder why we don't just embrace the light. Sometimes we wonder why the light still shines on us, even with our eyes closed. Thanks for your insights.
