There were several places in today’s reading where Jesus made it clear who He was and why He came. The verse that stood out to me today was John 8:12, When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Being the light of the world is more than just a simple flame. It means that no amount of evil could ever extinguish That flame. Let us all remember this as we face dark times in our lives. Our lives here on earth are not meant to be perfect. They are not meant to be without pain. But with Jesus in our lives, we are never alone.
