“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” - John 1:5
Have you ever been in a place that’s really and truly dark? A place with absolutely zero sources of light? It’s a little unsettling, isn’t it? We lose context. We become disoriented. And if we’re honest, sometimes we get scared. There is another kind of darkness that surrounds us. It’s not the absence of light. It’s the darkness of a world without good. A world without God.
There is darkness. But there is a light, too. And not just any light. It's a light that is overwhelming, all-consuming, and perfectly pure . . . a light that refuses to be ignored. It’s the light of God’s goodness. And it’s breaks through in the most amazing ways. There is a light that drives away darkness. A light that drives out fear. A light that runs off despair. A light that shines for justice. A light that is comforting and clarifying . . . A light that saves.
