"The Light"Stuart Jones “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” (Martin Luther King, Jr.) Dark places are scary. We do not know what is there, good or bad. Things are hidden from us by the darkness. When a light comes to a place of darkness, it illuminates the area for everyone. The light does not select certain people; it is there for all. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12) Our Savior came to light up the world; He came as an impartial light. Jesus was the light defeating darkness for all who would follow.
