As I’m reading the gospel of John again, I realize the power of Jesus as “the light.” John tells us: “In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” Jesus tells us: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
I love looking at the bright sun bursting through dark clouds. I love how the tiniest night-light or candle can scatter all the darkness in a room.
Whatever the darkness, we invite the Light of the World to overcome it now.
