My husband and I went to dinner from the island to the mainland in our boat. When we left it was still light, but when we got back from dinner it was dark. We had equipped our old boat with a light system so we would never be stranded in the dark again, however, our new boat has a system but it’s not operational. So, once again, we have no lights! The distance from the mainland to the island is just a ten minute ride, but there are obstacles everywhere! There are no lights on the channel markers and if you get outside of the channel, you’re sure to run aground. If you can’t see the markers because you have no lights, they then become a hazard. We managed to get across unharmed, but it took almost thirty minutes. Are you trying to move about in this life without your beacon of light guiding the way? Jesus is our light! Don’t try to traverse this world without him! You could run aground or worse, slam into a channel marker!
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
