Tuesday, May 23: 1 Chronicles 19-21; John 8:1-27 ~ Jody

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is: 1 Chronicles 19-21; John 8:1-27

I Am the Light of the World

12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
An important distinction here is the term "follows me". Often we think believing is enough (or don't even realize we are inactive in our walk), but without the action of following Jesus we are still left desiring the light of life He talks about here. Jesus is our light and His desire for us is to walk in His full light!! That we would follow him, putting our faith into action. The action of prayer, immersing ourselves in the word, listening to him and actively following Him so that we do not walk in darkness!

Important point, we need to "follow Him", not just believe in Him. We know He exists, but need to take the next step and follow what He says we should do.

Yes! Faith is not inactive!
