Jesus Is The True Light Of Life – September 8, 2016
1 John 1:5, … God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.
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.”
My grandchildren and I like to shut the lights off in the house at night, and use flashlights to play hide and seek. Occasionally, my granddaughter will get scared and turn on a light so she won’t be surprised by what’s in the room. You see, it’s not the dark I’m afraid of, it’s what I can’t see that concerns me.
Here’s a lesson worth teaching your children to help keep them from stumbling in their lives. The Bible says in 1 John 1:5, that “… God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.” This world can be a dark and confusing place apart from the light of God. But Jesus said in John 8:12, “…I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Make sure your children know that Jesus is the true light of life. There’s no stumbling in the dark when you follow Him.
Have a great day!
