Scripture: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 1 John 1: 5 The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? Psalm 27: 1
You know what this is. It is a night light. Sometimes our parents put one of these in our room so that we won't be afraid. Are any of you ever afraid of the dark? When I was a boy, one of my jobs was to take out the trash . Sometimes I would put it off too long and I would have to take out the trash after it was dark. If I heard a strange sound, I would sometimes set a world speed record getting back to the house!
We all get scared, sometimes.
Sometimes there are dark and lonely nights in our life. We aren't sure what is ahead of us or what is behind us and we often feel afraid When we are afraid, we have a light to make us feel safe. That light is Jesus. The Bible tells us that "God is light and in Him is no darkness." The Bible also says, "The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?" In the dark and stormy days of our life, we have Jesus to be with us. If Jesus is with us, we don't have to be afraid!
