Are You Afraid of the Dark? ~ March 29

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Then reach out and touch someone

This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1John 1:5

In a book I read recently about the Vietnam War a scene was described; while on a night patrol, it was so dark the soldiers had to reach out and put their hand on the back of the man in front of them, so they could know they were going the right direction and not get lost. I think the guy in front must have been a Christian.

When we have faith in Jesus and know He is with us at all times, we will not be afraid, and His light will be our guide. And, yes, I believe He can even guide us through the darkest jungles of this life, no matter what form they might take.

The light of Jesus never grows dim and never fades; the brightness of His love for us only wanes when we turn away from it. My belief is we can traverse the darkness of this world by placing our hand on Jesus, allowing His light to guide us. When we follow Him, our light will begin to shine brighter as well so that others can see their way safely to His love and blessings, peace, and joy.
