At some time in our lives we're all scared of something whether it's the dark or something we fear is close. It may be that kind of time in your life right now.
You need a steady light that gives you something that you can count on in the darkness.
The Word of God in John 8:12 says, "Jesus said, 'I am the light of the world, whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of Life.'" Jesus said, "I am the light." Here is a secure guarantee, "If I'm your light you will never walk in darkness." Jesus is the steady light you're looking for. You've lived long enough to have had the other lights probably let you down; people who were going to be there for you but the light went out. Maybe there was a job that you could count on that was suddenly gone. Maybe even a religion that just hasn't met your need when the need has been the greatest. Now, perhaps in a dark time, Jesus - The Light - stands before you, beckoning, extending His invitation. He is saying "Follow Me. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life."
Those who commit their lives to Jesus Christ, live under the wonderful promise that He made, "I will never leave you or forsake you." When no one else can be there, Jesus is there. When the situation is bigger than you are, the Son of God is bigger than the situation. When earth has no answers, Jesus gently leads you through the confusion and the hurt.
You can't see the light as long as there is a wall between you and Him. That wall, that separation, is what the Bible calls sin. We don't have any power to remove it, but in the words of the Bible, "While we were still sinners," while the wall was still there, "Christ died for us." He died to tear down your sin wall by paying your death penalty for running your own life. Now He waits for you to say, "Jesus, I'm putting my total trust in you to rescue me from my sin and from its penalty."
It might be a dark and scary night out there, but you can find security by heading toward the steady light. That security is Jesus Christ, our never-leaving Savior. Follow His light right through your life, and one day right through death and into His presence.
