John 1:4  “In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.”

The themes of light and darkness appear repeatedly throughout the Gospel of John. At this moment, we are either walking in the light or in the darkness. So where are you today?

Receiving the life that Jesus has to offer is the first step in following the Light! In the opening chapter of his book, John explains to us that “In Him (Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” That is to say, in order for me to switch on the light, I need to have His life within me! The instant I allow Jesus to enter my heart, He illuminates the path, and I am able to follow the light that He has provided.

Why is it so important to have this? Light is necessary for the growth of all things. Inspiration is brought about by illumination. When I follow the light, I am able to develop my spirituality with transparency, excitement, and a burning desire!

In point of fact, light was created by God as one of the very first things. God spoke into an empty and dark world Maybe your life feels like that, empty and dark. You can’t see where you’re going and feel meaningless, without any real purpose. Consider for a moment that God may be wanting to bring a genesis of new beginning in your life.

Creation begins and ends with God. “In the beginning GOD created…” (Genesis 1:1) He is still creating! God is still at work. He is always at work, and He wants to do a new work in your life. He wants to bring light where there is darkness, hope where there is despair and purpose in your pain.

It begins when you turn to Him. When you open your heart to receive the Lord Jesus, He turns on the light in your life! You don’t have to walk about in darkness. When you follow Him, you are following the light because He is the Light of the world!

As we commit ourselves to following the Light, we are collaborating with the process of God’s creative development in our life.

Try and find some time today to read through John chapter 1 and I will be praying for you, asking God to give you wisdom to see clearly and really understand who Christ is and all that He has done for you.
