God is Light. He leads the way.8th March 2018
We all face different darknesses that happen at different times in our lives. Darkness makes us lose direction as to where we are going; it makes us doubt ourselves, because it obscures the truth. It leads us into sin and chaos because we cannot see.
But what will cast away darkness? The answer is easy. Light.
“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.”
Earlier in John chapter 8, A woman was been caught up for committing adultery, the teachers of the law and the Pharisees made this woman stood before the crowd. They said to Jesus,
“Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”(v. 4-5)
The teachers of the law and the Pharisees were trying to set a trap for Jesus, so they can have an excuse to accuse him. However, Jesus asked them,
“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” (v. 7)
After Jesus spoke, people began the leave one by one.
We are not perfect. It is very easy for us to walk in the darkness and fall into sin. God is the light of the world that cast away darkness; He brings truth and life so that we are able to recognise our own sin and be aware of it.
“ But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 John 1:7-9
God is light, and He leads us away from sin.
