“O house of Jacob, come all of you, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.” Isaiah 2:5
There are so many sources of light. Without light we walk in darkness and the blindness that goes along with it. I was in a cave once and the guide turned off the light source. The blackness was so complete that it felt like it was entering my body, and indeed, it was. I thought about it for a moment and realized that just a few days of this utter blackness and I would most likely go insane.
I believe it is the same with spiritual darkness. Without the light of God’s presence in our life we gradually become the very darkness we find ourselves in. It enters into our soul and destroys the image of God, the very One in who’s image and likeness we were created.
We have a choice, each day, each moment: to walk in the light of the Lord or to choose the darkness of the world.
The first brings with it an ever increasing freedom and joy; the second only offers blindness and chains.
Jesus said: “I am the light of the world, he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life!”
