Thought of the Day April 15, 2024 Easter: I am the Light of the world.

By 9:35 AM

 "I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life."  For the Apostles this was more than a truth. It was a lived experienced. When Jesus died, their hope in him as the Messiah also died. Their world  had now become darkness. When he rose from the dead and appeared to them, they experienced the light that transforms life. As the sun dispels the darkness of night, so the Son of God dispelled the darkness of despair and condemnation. We too experience this transformation when we separated ourselves from God through sin and then are restored anew by the Light of life. We can choose to live in the darkness of nothingness or we can accept and embrace the new life of grace from the Light of the world.
