Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). He also said, “You are the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:14) The light that came with Christ needs to go on shining in the darkness. As we venture into a new year we can be confident that the light of Christ will go before us to lead and guide. And we are challenged to be bearers of that light, with a calling to dispel every darkness.
