Candlelight

1 John 1:5-9

      This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

John 12:35-37

    Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going. 36 Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them. 37 Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him.

Sunlight

Ephesians 5:14

 This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

James 1:17

 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

   Candlelight, moonlight, and sunlight are all lights but they cannot compare to the One True Light who is Jesus Christ. Today I am thankful that it is Jesus who lights my path.

What lights your world?

What song brightens your day?

What are you thankful for today?
