Seeking the Light

We had left, early, in order to drive to the beach - and it was getting late when we returned.  My private devotions, therefore, were conducted when it was dark outside.  As I sat there, I became aware of a lot of movement on the window beside where I sat.  It was moths, and various other members of the insect world, trying to make their way through the glass!  Why would they be so intent on doing so?  Simply because they were attracted by the light that was shining in the room as I read.  If I had opened the window, they would have swarmed in - not to me, but to the light.

Jesus said, "I am the Light of the world".(John 8:12).  He is the One Who brings illumination to life.  He is the One Who guides us through life.  He is the One Who warns us of the dangers that we face in life.  Darkness cannot co-exist with light. Light pierces the darkness and destroys its hold on life. The flame of one small candle pierces the darkness. The light from many candles can overcome the darkness.

That same Jesus said "I'll never turn away the one who comes to me." (Jn.6:37).  He welcomes ALL who come to Him in simple faith - trusting in His sacrificial death for their own salvation.  How sad, then - indeed, how tragic - that so many not only ignore, but even avoid, the Light.

"Verily", saith the preacher, "it is a strange thing that a humble moth shows greater intelligence than a human being"!!!
