If we follow Christ, we don’t have to walk in darkness. Christ is giving us an amazing promise. Many of us had walked in darkness for so long that we thought there wasn’t anything other than darkness. We became comfortable with the darkness of our lives and never searched for anything else. When we became followers of Christ, we experienced Light for the first time.
Coming out of darkness and into the bright light of Christ changes everything. What was once dull and gray is now vivid and alive with color. We see everything differently now that we are living in the Light. What was once hidden has been exposed to Light. When Light enters our lives, darkness flees. Our once closed hearts are now open for Christ to enter and dwell in magnificent bright Light.
Christ leads, and we follow. Christ didn’t say, “If you worship me…” He said, “If you follow me…” Christ wants to take us on an amazing adventure. He wants us to do more than just worship Him as Lord. He wants us to act, get in tune with Him, and work with Him to change the world. Those of us who no longer live in darkness are perfectly suited for helping Christ bring others out of darkness and into His Light. Christ’s promise of living in Light is being fulfilled. Never again do any of us have to live in darkness.
