ONLY LIGHT CAN OVERCOME DARKNESS

“I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me may not remain in darkness.” – John 12:46
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.”- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Have you ever been in a situation where it was so dark that you couldn’t even see your hand in front of you? At one of our programs this summer we were hiking a trail really late one night and we decided to turn off all of our lights to see how dark it was. We couldn’t see a thing. It was pitch black! And then we turned on one small flashlight and suddenly we could see the entire trail. The darkness shrank back and allowed us to see, all because it’s impossible for darkness to overcome even one little light.
Jesus refers to Himself as the Light of the world. In other words, Jesus is the embodiment of how to know God and live life. He brings clarity and direction to the confusion and uncertainty that comes in navigating this life.
Today, you might feel like your life is engulfed in darkness. You might feel lost and confused when it comes to dealing with the season that you’re in. A recent health diagnosis or relational conflict might feel like a darkness you just don’t know how to navigate on your own. What about your life’s purpose? No matter how dark life appears, Jesus wants to be the Light that lights the way through every challenge. Invite Christ into your life and that Light will be turned on. No matter how dark your life appears, with Jesus, life will begin to make sense. With the Light of the World in your life, you’ll be filled with hope and understanding.
