Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.’ (John 8:12)
If we walk into a room looking for something and it’s completely dark: we wouldn’t be able to see anything, we’d bump into things, we’d find it difficult to find what we were looking for, it would take a long time and we’d get very frustrated. We would literally be “fumbling around in the dark”. Put the light on and all becomes clear, and we can find things much more easily; the task becomes easier all of a sudden.
When we follow Jesus, the “light of the world”, we can avoid walking through life blindly. He lights our path; He shows the path through life; we can see how to live life. This Lent learn how to let Christ be your light; then there will be no more stumbling, no more fumbling your way through life. All will become clear.
