There’s something about being outdoors on a beautiful day under a big blue sky with the warmth and light of the sun on our faces. We want to hold onto that peace as long as possible.

Think about the power of light. Light brings life, clarity, and safety. It drives away gloom and brings hope. Nightlights allow little children to sleep peacefully. Light offers safety as we walk down dark streets. Light can keep you from falling, and it allows crops to grow.

Jesus is the light of the world, and when His Spirit illuminates our hearts, we start to see with clarity the difference between right and wrong. When we have put our trust in Jesus as Savior, He has promised that we would have the light of life illuminate our path to lead and guide us in our everyday decisions, showing us what is around us: whether we are on the right track, under an attack of the enemy or are about to fall into a ditch we dug ourselves. Without the brilliance of the Son, our world would be a very cold and dark place.

This Light keeps shining. Nothing can stop it. No one can put it out. No darkness can defeat this light. Walk in this Light and live under the brilliance of its glow? As His followers, brighten our world with rays of faith, hope, and love because of His light.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5
