In today’s culture, what does following someone mean? Who are you following? In the age of smartphones, Facebook, Instagram, etc. we “follow” so many people. Who we follow likely ranges from our closest friends or relatives to people we don’t even know. Is how we follow Jesus different? Jesus wants us to follow him in such a way that we are in a relationship with him. Walking with him, imitating him, learning more about him, believing in him and knowing that he’s the son of God and the light of the world.

I love that Jesus is our light and that through his Spirit his light is within us. Darkness comes but the light of Jesus can, and will, overpower it for all who believe in him. Following Jesus can keep us from stumbling in the darkness. The darkness of sin, lies, addiction, fear, anxiety. When any darkness enters your life, turn to the light for guidance and support. Jesus promises that whoever follows him will not walk in darkness. Claim that promise today and follow Jesus closely.

John 8:12 (ESV) 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.”
