Lights shining in the darkness, showing the way.
Light streaking through the sky as the sun rises.
Light sparkling off a lake.
Nothing shines and sparkles without light.
“I am the Light of the World” Jesus said in John 8.
He lights our way – showing us where to go. We never have to walk in darkness.
In this same section of John, Jesus says that we judge him by human standards – that’s why we can sometimes be so blind.
We can be so wrong.
We can be so lost.
Evaluating Jesus in human terms just confuses us.
He is God.
We just have to trust in that and believe – we will never understand completely.
When we open our minds to someone as different and huge and perfect as Jesus, he lights up our thinking. All of the possibilities in heaven and on earth become real.
Open your mind! Let Jesus light it up!
Thank you, Jesus!
