8 For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light
Children are often afraid of the dark. Sometimes grown-ups are, too. The fright comes from not knowing what is out there waiting for us--and just not being able to see into the darkness. To remedy this fear, usually just a night light is all it takes. Such a simple solution to a unnerving problem makes me wonder what other simple solutions are out there to intimidating circumstances.
God intends for us to live in the light rather than to be afraid in the dark. He loves us and wants us to be able to see clearly in the light and not fear the dark. In fact, God put Jesus, His own son, on earth for us to reach out to the Light and take hold of it in our lives and in our hearts. Yet so many people still curse the dark and refuse to accept the light of Christ. Welcoming help from God and choosing light is not always easy, but it is a choice that will make a real difference in our lives. Casting away the darkness of fear, prejudice, bigotry, and hatred will help the world to be a better, more light-filled place to be. So for another song that I love. . .
