When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 New International Version
There once were two men living in house beside each other.
One night there was a storm and it knocked out all the hydro.
The one man woke up feeling very hungry so he went to the kitchen in the dark to make himself a sandwich. Instead of putting peanut butter on the bread he put mustard. Instead of putting jam on the bread he put on horse radish. He took a big bite and his mouth was burning, his stomach felt as if there were red hot fingers gripping it. In pain he reached for something to drink. Instead of drinking apple juice he drank hot sauce. He was in agony.
The second man felt hungry as well. He grabbed a flash light and went into the kitchen and made a peanut butter and jam sandwich and sat down to enjoy it with a warm cup of delicious tea.
The difference between the two men was the light.
So too it is in life.
Those who walk in darkness are constantly groping about for something to satisfy them only to be rewarded with pain.
Those who follow Christs light enjoy a delightful, life giving meal of the Holy Spirit.
Which meal are you eating?
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddia (God who is sufficient for all of our needs) for blessing me with an abundant supply of daily sweet spiritual bread. I magnify You in the name of the living bread Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
