No More Darkness!
“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”
The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is a Gospel of light. No wonder Jesus said those who follow Him shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. To follow Him is to believe His Gospel and act accordingly. When you believe and do the Word of God, darkness departs from your life and you’ll no longer live in confusion. No wonder David said “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple” (Psalm 119:130).
1John 2:8 says “Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.” Here, John talks about the Gospel, referring to it as “the true light.” He says the true light has now come and this light shines, meaning there’s no more darkness. So, for the one who’s experiencing confusion, failure and is unsure about tomorrow; all he needs is to follow Jesus—the Light, and there’ll be no more darkness. He’s the light that shows you how and what to do about any situation.
It doesn’t matter how dark things have been in your family, job or finances; or perhaps you’ve been facing a recurrent health issue that has defied solution; the darkness is over. Keep your gaze on Jesus, the Light of life; He’s the solution to every problem. He’s the light in whom there’s no darkness. As you follow Him through the Word, He’ll light your path and illuminate your life with His glory.
Recognize that as a new creation in Christ Jesus the light of the glorious gospel now shines in your heart (2 Corinthians 4:6). This light has been shone into your future, through the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, such that you’ll never be in doubt or confusion in anything: “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:13).
I declare that there’s light in my life and in all that concerns me. I refuse to worry about today or the future because the light of the Gospel shines in my heart, there’s no darkness whatsoever in my life. I can see that my way is bright and my future secure.
