Read Scripture Passage Here: John 11:1-16
For me today, although I might tend to want to be focused on Lazarus's sickness, or Mary's cleansing of Jesus's feet with perfume, I'm hung up on: Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light. It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.”
It would seem like Jesus is talking about getting to his destination in the safety and cover of the night, yet the passage seems to suggest that without the light we stumble.
Could it be that Jesus is referring to himself as the light? If that's the case the night would have no bearing on them stumbling because the one that keeps you from stumbling would be with them.
It seems as though a lot of the things that destroy us do take place under the cover of darkness. We feel as long as the darkness is about the things we do won't be seen. Bars are dark. I know because I owned one. The Majority of people don't want the atmosphere bright, they want the lights down. Dance floors are dark. The window tints are dark.
Jesus is the light. He brings all things out into the open. That seems scary for most. It sure was for me. But what I noticed, is that once they are brought into the light, they can be dealt with and taken care of.
Perspective changes.... gotta love them.
