Light: Came to Dwell in our Darkness
Are you afraid of the dark? The worst thing about darkness is not knowing whether we will bump into a wall, step on a toy, or fall down a stair with each step. And while God calls us out of darkness, He doesn’t give us the roadmap of where we are going. When God led Israel out of slavery in Egypt, He did not give a road map to the Promised Land but led them each day with his own presence with a pillar of fire by night. Where the presence moved, the people would move. Similarly, Jesus is the light of the world who leads his people step by step with his presence. But this brings a choice: since Jesus is the light of the world, we can choose darkness or follow Jesus into life.
