Light Overcomes Darkness

Billy Graham once shared that scientists say they do not know what light is. They said that they know the effects of the sun, but don’t exactly know all about it. They also said that they know that no plant or animal or human life on this earth can live without light.

Here is an immutable truth: darkness cannot overcome light. We can go into the darkest room, and if we light a tiny candle, or a match, the light will always overcome the darkness within the room. This truth should be a great encouragement to us in the spiritual realm as well. No matter how dark our circumstances may seem, the Light of God, can lift the darkness that pervades our being, when we seek for the Light.

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). A Sunday school chorus that we sang as children said, “The Light of the World is Jesus, and if you come to him, he will cleanse you from your sin.
