John 8:12 – 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.”
As a new year dawns and we take down the decorations and lights to pack them away in some dark and dusty corner of our house until next Christmas, we need to make sure we don’t pack Christ away into some dark and dusty corner of our life.
As Jesus tells us in today’s verse, he is “the light of the world.” And, if we follow him, he promises that we “will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” As his followers we need to resolve daily to let that light shine brightly in our lives. “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
God’s blessings for a wonderful New Year!
Yours in Christ,
