I almost didn’t go to the meeting.
The sky was turning dark gray and I was hesitant to possibly be driving in a storm.
At the last minute, I decided to go.
On the way back home when the meeting had ended, it was still raining and lightning was splitting the sky above me.
As I drove, I began to notice that there was a break in the clouds just where the sun was setting.
For about twenty minutes, I watched as magnificent colors of light cascaded across the sky in front of me.
Pulling my car to the side of the road, I took some photographs as the scene unfolded.
As I was continuing my journey home, blazing forks of lightning ripped through the clouds over my car.
There was not a time, however, that I could not see the light piercing through the opening in the atmosphere.
John 8:12 reads,
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.”
Even though we may feel that we are surrounded by darkness and sin in the world, we do not have to walk in darkness ourselves.
We can follow Jesus, who is the light of the world, keeping our eyes on Him.
