As much as we say we long for light to brighten our darkness, sometimes when that light comes it seems so bright it’s actually painful to look at it. And that’s the point. The light functions to show the way, to illuminate the road ahead so we can see where we’re going. When the light comes, it’s a sign to turn and follow. We aren’t meant just to sit and admire Jesus, the Light of the world, we’re meant to follow him.
