When I (Mike) was a little child I was afraid of the dark. When it was bedtime my parents would leave a light on in my room to bring assurance that all was well.
Before we went out knowing we would only arrive home after dark, we would always leave the light on outside the front door as well as in the entrance hall - a practice which we continue to this day. Even when we go on holiday and we are in our accommodation, we leave a light on in the passage so that we will not bump into things should we have the need to get up during the night.
Somehow having a light on reassures us that things are okay.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Followers of Christ have the assurance that the light will always be on. For those who do not know Christ as their Lord, the light on the porch beckons you to a place of safety, love and care.
Let us walk in His light in all we do today.
