Read John 8:12
“I am the Light of the world…”
I don’t know about you but I am absolutely terrified of the dark. Ever since I was a kid, I would turn on the lights of rooms as I go from one to another. If I’m stuck on stairs without a light, I am most likely running up the steps, skipping a few at a time, running from whoever or whatever I imagine is chasing me up the stairs. It makes for an awkward moment when I bust through the door and have to describe the life and death situation I just overcame to the confused looks people are giving me.
When Jesus came to earth, He was the Light in a dark world. In a world that needed hope and deliverance, Jesus was the answer!. Just like the world, our hearts can be a very dark place because of sin. When we invite Jesus into our lives, our dark heart becomes light just as a small light lights up a huge dark room! What change has Jesus brought to your life? In what way are you showing the light of Jesus to those around you? As a family, what are some ways that you can brighten someone’s day and show them the hope that you have in Christ?

Brighten someone’s day by pre-paying machines at the laundromat or taking a family in need out to dinner.
