Focus Scripture: John 8:12
♫I want to walk as a child of the light . . . ♪
One of my favorite things is to walk (or sit) in the sun and feel the warmth on my face. Just being in the sunlight can be energizing. Conversely dark days can make me feel a bit down.
That's true in life as well. When we are in the light, following Jesus, in communion with God through God's grace, we are energized. We feel peace--the peace that surpasses understanding. Jesus is the light for those who follow him. He shows us how to live, how to relate to God and how we should relate to each other. When we follow Him, we can bask in His light.
As part of today's devotion, take 5 minutes to sit in the sun and sit in God's presence, thinking on how Jesus is the not only the Son, but the sun of righteousness.
