“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
I was reminded of this verse today, on Martin Luther King Day, because of one of the Reverend King’s quotes, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that”. As human beings we cannot survive and be healthy living in darkness. We need light for our well being. Sunlight provides Vitamin D, an important vitamin that mediates an innate immunity to microbial infection and skin cancer. Sunlight also helps you feel energetic, motivated and helps alleviate the wintertime blues. The same can be said for “Son light”. What can lift you up and make your spirit soar quicker than the light that comes from God’s only Son, Jesus Christ? Crack open the bible when you are down, and tell me you can’t find hope and joy in God’s word. The bible is full of promises that are yours, if you’ll just make Christ the “light of your life”. His light can drive out the darkness in your life, His Love can wash that hate away.
Sunlight gives life here on earth, “Son light” gives life eternal.
