Keep Following The Light!
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth
me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. – King James Version
Jesus once again addressed them: "I am the world's Light. No one who follows me
stumbles around in the darkness. I provide plenty of light to live in." – The Message
An old gospel song said, “Follow Jesus, take no chance getting lost…” This is a true statement. For on
your own you are like a man walking in darkness in a strange place. However, when Jesus “The Light
Of The World” appears there is no place where He leads you that you cannot successfully navigate.
The problem with many people is self-sufficiency. You must be delivered from the Burger King
mentality of having it your own way on this Christian walk. God’s Word reminds you that there is a
way that seems right but the end results are death. God has a plan and in order to achieve success you
must follow His plan and not another.
When times of uncertainty or confusion arise, look to Jesus. He will shine a light on every situation
and circumstance. Oftentimes, He will not only show you where you are going but also explain why
you are where you are! Yes, His Spirit reveals things that eyes have never seen nor has even entered
your heart. Your responsibility is to simply trust Him and follow Him.
