August 22, 2021 - Light to See

I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. - John 8:12
I will be a light unto them forever, that hear my words. - 2 Nephi 10:14
[L]et us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. - Romans 13:12

I was watching The Croods movie today and a character said the he will follow the light. I immediately thought of the scripture in John where Jesus said that He is the light of the world. And I thought that I need to follow Him.

This world is getting darker. We will not travel in the right direction if we can't see where we are stepping. We need light. We absolutely need light.

Have you ever tried to make your way through pitch blackness? Maybe it was a room in your house in the night time. Point is, we try to feel our way through it. We try to feel our way along a wall because we know there is a light switch somewhere on that wall. Why do we explicitly and specifically look for a light switch in complete darkness?

Because we know inherently that a light will provide vision, the ability to see. It will provide a way to see where we are stepping. It provides the ability to travel in the right direction.

Jesus Christ is that light to give us the ability to see and to go in the right direction. He is the light that will NEVER be extinguished. All we need to do is hear His words. That's how we can follow the light. That's how we can escape the ever-increasing darkness of this world.

So let's specifically look and find how we can switch that light on along the wall of life. That light not only provides a way to see, it also lifts the burden and makes it easier to travel. All darkness provides is fear of every step we take, worry that we're not going the right way, exhaustion when we stumble over something, and hopelessness when we lose our way.

Why put ourselves through that? We don't have to.
