Jesus, the Light

Recently I bought some light bulbs. The box said that the bulbs would last a year. I was excited to think that the company who made the bulbs promised they would last a year. I put the bulbs into a hanging lamp on my porch.
Every time I turned on the porch lamp, I thought about how many more days the bulbs would last. A couple of months later, I turned on the lamp. There was no light. The manufacturer had not kept his promise.
Our Bible verses today tell us that Jesus is different than my light bulbs. He said that He is the light of the world. Jesus is shining now and will continue for all eternity. People who choose to follow Jesus “will never live in darkness. They will have the light that gives life” (verse 12b).
Do you let Jesus’ light shine in all areas of your life? Ask Him to lead you and keep you in His light every day.
