Trust in The Light
I don’t have much to say about the twenty-fourth chapter of Job. However, the following verse did stick out to me and made think about The Light.
Those who fight against the light do not know God’s ways or stay in his paths. – Job 24:13
The Apostle Paul called Christians Children of the Light.
For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night. – 1 Thessalonians 1:5
Jesus also called those who believe in the light Children of the Light.
Believe in the light while there is still time; then you will become children of the light. – John 12:36
When Simeon prayed to God, while holding the baby Jesus, he had the following to say about him.
He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel! – Luke 2:32
Jesus later identified himself as the light of the world.
Jesus said to the people, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t be stumbling through the darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” – John 8:12
I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the darkness. – John 12:46
So I see that Jesus himself is the light. And if I believe in him I am his child.
Father, thank you for lighting my dark world with the light of Christ. May I live my life as a child of the light. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Come into the Light. Jan
