JESUS IS LIGHT!

Jesus, You are the LIGHT!  To be honest, over the last few days I have been overwhelmed by the brokenness of the world around me.  The trials that my friends are going through with #Hurricane Harvey, the sin that comes in and shatters lives, or just the struggles that we face daily.   But this morning as I study about who You are as the LIGHT – I realize again that this is why You came!  John 1:1-5 says that You came to overcome the darkness with Your LIGHT!  Jesus, You are the LIGHT!!  And the darkness and brokenness we see all around us CANNOT OVERCOME YOU!!  It is like walking into a dark room and turning on a flashlight or a lamp. The darkness does not overcome the flashlight or the lamp – the LIGHT overcomes the darkness!!  The LIGHT makes it possible for me to see!!   Jesus, You are the LIGHT that has come into the world.  You are the One who has overcome the sin of the world!  Your LIGHT shines truth into this dark and troubled world – and the truth is that You have OVERCOME death and sin and sorrow!  This is why I have to keep studying Your Word – and I have to keep my eyes FIXED on You, Jesus, not on this world.  Join me in studying 100 of the names that describe Him through 100 DAYS WITH JESUS!  Sign up for weekly content that will walk you through the 100 days at http://www.thecottonhouse.com.  100 DAYS WITH JESUS books are also now available anywhere books are sold (see the list on my website)!  I MUST keep studying His word in order to keep my eyes FIXED on Jesus – please study along with me!  IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!! 

Are your eyes FIXED on Jesus, or the things of this world?  Worship Him today as the LIGHT that has come into the world to OVERCOME the darkness!  #100dayswithjesus
