Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
When I was a boy growing up in
It was apparent that the man was blind, and he held a sign that read, “The sun is shining, but I cannot see.” And you know, there really are a lot of people like that beggar in the world today. There’s a Light to be seen…but so many people are blind to it.
All of us know what it’s like to be in a pitch-dark room where you can’t see your hand in front of your face. Where you have vision…but you can’t see. Where there is sight…but no light.
Maybe you feel like your life is filled with darkness today…and the light of reason, the light of logic, the light of conscience have all failed you.
If so, remember you have light through Jesus Christ…the One who is “the light of the world.” So focus on Him!
As the old hymn says,
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
if you are weary and troubled, look up to jesus today!
