John 1:1-5 has been the verse to meditate on during the first week of the For All Advent study. Admittedly, this has been a tough piece of Scripture for me to wrap my mind around in the past.
It is a beautiful promise.
Jesus was with God before Creation. He is the Light of the world, and the darkness will never overcome the Light.
Sometimes, the future looks bleak. We look ahead and only see uncertainty. Life throws us a circumstance that seems insurmountable. We associate darkness with difficulty.
Jesus never promised us an easy life…but He did promise He has overcome it. We can focus on this Scripture in difficult times. In it, we see the promise that Jesus was there before, He’s here now, and He will remain eternally.
When faced with darkness, let us remember the Light.
