This is one of my favorite Bible verses (hence the name of this blog!). What a wonderful promise that Jesus makes in this verse. Before we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are lost, wandering aimlessly in search of something - anything - that will fill the void in our lives. Without knowledge of God's amazing gift, we are in the dark. But Jesus illuminates the truth and brings us a peace that only the daylight can bring.
Jesus is the light of the WORLD, not just a small group of people, and WHOEVER follows him will have the eternal life. This is not an exclusive club - ANYONE can join, as long as they believe. It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, popular or not. Jesus doesn't care what you've done in the past. He only cares that you believe in your heart that He is the only way to reach Heaven.
If you haven't taken that step to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, do it now. Don't wait. And then thank God for the gift of light.
