When studying earth's place in space, my students learn about rotation and revolution. We discuss the energy that we get from the sun and, inevitably, what would happen if there wasn't a sun or if the sun stopped shining on earth. Without the sun, we would experience nothing but cold and darkness!
Our spiritual lives are a lot like this model of the earth. If we turn away from the Son, from Jesus Christ, we will find ourselves in darkness. Jesus reminds us that He is our light. When we are in this world, we don't have to be left out in the cold or stumble through the darkness alone. We just need to call on Jesus and focus on the light that He provides in our lives!
Call on Jesus and move out of the darkness into the light of the Son!
Thank You for Your light in this world. Help me to always focus on Jesus' light and to share this light with others. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
