When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life”.
John 8: 12
We live in a world with so much uncertainty, which has increased in the last 2 years. Due to the global pandemic, many things that we have held dear, the foundations of life, have been shaken. Some of us have lost jobs, been isolated from our families. We have experienced restrictions that have affected what we do every day. These challenges, limitations and uncertainties have created a heaviness and darkness in our lives.
Jesus tells us, those who follow Him will never walk in darkness. He takes away that uncertainty. Jesus takes away the heaviness by replacing it with His light, within us, through His overpowering grace and love. He is always dependable, unlike the uncertainty of our current environment.
Lord Jesus, please teach me to accept your grace and mercy, and as I follow you, please put within me the light that will take away all heaviness and uncertainty. Please fill my heart with joy. Amen
