Most of us don't start a journey by blindfolding ourselves because:
- it's scary
- you could fall over
- you might not end up going the right way
Not having light makes a journey more difficult. It doesn't mean it's impossible, but it does put us at a disadvantage.
The journey of life is the same. Without light, it's more scary, there are obstacles and you might end up going in the wrong direction.
So I want to ask you, can you see where you are going?
Are you trying to walk through life with the lights on or off?
This is what Jesus says;
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
So, if you're walking life your own way, without Jesus as a part of it, you're walking with the lights off.
Jesus is the light.
He can show you the way to go.
If you've not accepted Him as a part of your life, then you are walking in darkness. It's scarier, there's uncertainty about where your going or what obstacles there are, and it's more difficult.
Why make life hard for yourself?
Invite Jesus to be part of your life, and he will light the way.
He will show you the way to go, he'll be with you on the journey and give you insight, you might even be able to avoid the discomfort of a few obstacles!
Jesus is, 'the light of the world'. He provides us with the ability to see more clearly what our lives are about.
We all know that in a dark room things become clearer once we turn a light on, it makes a big difference.
Having Jesus in your life makes a big difference.
When you turn the light on, you see the obstacles to avoid, you no longer have to trip over them. You see the route you need to take. There is less fear. Following Jesus is like that. What you see changes.
The purpose of where you are going and what you are doing is made clearer.
Do you want to see where you are going?
