Light

light – the form of electromagnetic radiation that acts upon the retina of the eye, optic nerve, etc., making sight possible
Again Jesus spoke to them saying, “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
God made order out of chaos with the words ‘Let there be light’.   The complexity and beauty of the created universe pointed to something greater, a higher power.  Creation was the visible sign of a powerful and loving God.  Because of light, we see and know that God is.    
When God came to dwell among us in human form, as the Word made flesh, light was again used to show us a visible God.  A star led the way to the manger for those that knew where to look.  His light came to show us the way out of darkness and that leaves us with two choices – to follow the light or stay in darkness. 
Following the light of Jesus is a difficult choice.  He asks us to turn the other cheek, love our enemies, feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, take care of the sick, search for the lost, proclaim the kingdom, become salt and light and peacemakers, deny ourselves, and store up our treasures in heaven. 
It’s a choice we have to make every day; to be light in a dark world.  But when we make that choice to be light, Jesus promises to always be with us, even until the end of the world.
