The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. – John 1:9 (NLT)
Do you remember being scared of the dark as a little kid? I’ve got to be honest, I still don’t really love the dark. I know there’s not REALLY a monster hiding in my closet, but sometimes those clothes look so weird in the dark, you kind of wonder…
But this isn’t a devotion about monsters. Instead, it’s about light. See when it’s dark and the lights go on, it’s great! Suddenly you can see what you couldn’t before. Things that once seemed weird and scary now come into focus.
That’s what Jesus came to the world to be in our lives. He came to be light. Jesus brings light to scary situations. He shows us what they really are and illuminates them in ways that make them seem less scary.
It’s no wonder that the Bible describes Jesus as light. He’s there to help us when the world seems dark and scary. He gives us joy, hope and all we need. Jesus really is the light of the world!
