The Light

The night is dark.  Creepy things crawl in the night. 

Things go bump in the night.  

And everything seems exaggerated at night

– Sickness is worse

– throats are sorer

– fever goes up

– pain throbs harder.

In the night, loneliness is more acute,  heart aches are more painful,  more tears are shed in the night than in daylight.

Lots of things are hidden by the night. 

My house looks cleaner at night. The dust cannot be seen; the windows look clean.

But when the sun shines through, all the hidden things are revealed.

Crime is up at night.  Things are done in the night that would never be done in daylight.

Things are not seen in the dark as they really are.  Honky-tonks really look grubby in morning’s light!

Jesus is the light.

Without Him we are in darkness.

Without Him there is no true comfort or hope.

Life without Him is vain, empty.

Jesus comes into our life, and  “We are called out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1Pet.2:9)

Evil cannot exist where the Light is; He expels the darkness of evil and fills us with the light of righteousness. 

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (Jno.8:12).
