Our perspective affects everything. We may be convinced of the true of a thing until we get more information. Once we have complete information, we can also have a correct perspective. John chapter 10 challenges our perspective of who Jesus is.
A life with Jesus is truly a gift. We need to be concerned with our pursuit of God before our own happiness. Pursuing Jesus with all that we have and all that we are IS the good life.
The light of God’s word brings safety. it can keep us from falling, but it also tells us how to get back up if we do fall. It also gives guidance, enabling us to navigate this world. It also provides illumination as the Holy Spirit reveals wisdom in a way that is unique to each of us.
When the days are short, and it is the darkest time of the year, we do something interesting: we light everything up! God also brought light into the darkness in creation. He brought light forth simply by His word. The word of God is powerful, and the scale of His creation is immense. But He still wants to be involved in the smallest details in each of our lives. He wants to be able to exercise His creating power in our lives.
