Are you afraid of the dark? Many people are afraid of what they cannot see. Some people do not like to sleep in a dark room, so they have a night light to give them some light.
There is spiritual darkness in our world today. This darkness hides the truth about Jesus. Verse 4 of our Bible Reading says, “The ruler of this world (the devil) has blinded the minds of people who don’t believe. They cannot see the light (truth) of the Good News — the Good News about the glory of Christ.”
But we can be the light in a dark world. Just as a night light gives light in a room, we can share the truth about Jesus with people that we meet every day. Verse 6b says, “And this is the same God who made his light shine in our hearts. He gave us light by letting us know the glory of God that is in the face of Christ.”
Don’t be afraid of the darkness. God will protect you, and He wants you to shine brightly for Him.
