John 12:46 (NKJV) I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.
Darkness is growing in this world. Violence, hatred, death, disease, corruption… hardly a day goes by current events don’t remind us of the gathering storm clouds of an increasingly Godless humanity.
Maybe it’s all much more personal for you. Sickness, financial struggles, betrayals, criticism… whether a global scale or personal, the darkness can close in.
Good news! Christians need NEVER live (abide) in the dark! The lights might dim or go out occasionally but it never has to stay dark (abide). Jesus lights the entire dark world or your personal dark world… hope for suffering, blessing for sacrifice, joy for hard times.
Think It Over: If life seems “dark” to you all the time who changed? You or Jesus? It’s not because the Light has dimmed or been snuffed out. You might be far away from Jesus or have your back turned on Him. Did Jesus lie? If you are abiding in the darkness of life, there is One Way you can change it permanently.
