Truly God Devotional 8

Sometimes when I'm driving I can't seem to get my visor to block out the brightness of the sun. There's almost always a small gap that it can penetrate and blind me. Jesus is this kind of light. Let's look at what Jesus Himself says about being light.

John 8:12 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."

You can't run and you can't hide because you can't avoid His presence. Even the lost feel His presence. Common grace given to everyone by God leads the lost. A lack of personal fulfillment and spiritual emptiness may both lead the lost to seek and find the truth. All human beings are born with the need for Jesus. Jesus is the only REAL God, the only REAL Savior, and the only REAL friend. He is the rock on which humanity rests. A life without Him is NO life at all!

Jesus says to follow Him and we will never walk in darkness, but light. Following Christ has always been an act of rebellion against organized religion and society as a whole. This is what we see happening in the life of Christ and what we experience in our own life. Jesus knew that living in the truth could make the darkness in others erupt. He reassures us that the light of life will be with us in ALL circumstances. The darkness will NEVER extinguish the light....in the world.....or within us. We have an eternal flame living within us people and it is burning for Christ. Now that is a wonderful comfort to us all.
