We have gone through some dark days since the start of the pandemic. It is so hopeful to remember that Jesus is the light of the world! John tells us part of what it means for Jesus to be the light in his prologue,

“In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” – John 1:4-5

Jesus shines in the darkness! If you have ever lived in darkness (which we all have) we know just how important that light really is!

Not only that Jesus talked about our connection with being the light,

“You are the light of the world!” – Matt 5:14

Jesus’ light became a light in us. Just as Jesus’ light pierced the darkness, so will ours. Just as Jesus’ light gave hope to those who lived in darkness, so will ours.

The question isn’t whether or not we are the light. We are. The question is how then will we let it shine unless we position ourselves in places of darkness?
