The Light

Submitted by Donnie O’Fallon
There was the true light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. John 1:9 ...
The Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light.
John 3:19

A few days ago, I was awakened a little earlier than usual, a while before daybreak. Not wishing to wake Marsha I quietly got up, showered and got ready to start the day. I had picked out my shirt and pants the night before and hung my pants on the front of the rack.  The only problem was, I didn’t turn on the light in the closet to make sure the pants I had chosen were a color that matched theshirt I had chosen. I quietly dressed, got a cup of coffee and a breakfast drink and headed to the church. When I arrived, the day was just breaking, I unlocked the door and went to my office. WhenI turned on the light, I looked down and saw that my green pants didn’t match the blue shirt I was wearing. The light made all the difference. I returned home and changed into pants that matchedmy shirt.
Just as the light in my office shed truth on the fact that what I was wearing didn’t match, Jesus sheds truth in our life too.  Jesus is truly, the light out the world! His word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. His words are life and truth. His works reveal the will of our Heavenly Father. We’d all do well to walk in His Light.

Prayer“Help us daily to walk in the light you give. You said, the step of a good man are ordered by the Lord. Order my steps today Lord.”
