Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8, Verse 12)
What strikes me most about this verse is that Jesus didn’t say we should be bogged down by man-made rules and guilt. He didn’t condemn us or cast us aside for being sinners.
This verse provides an opportunity to look beyond ourselves, cultures and expectations. It encourages us to think bigger, elevating our aspirations to things of God, without letting anything else get in the way.
There will be darkness, but if we follow Jesus, we’ll be okay.
Wow, do I feel loved when I read this verse!
