The darkness can sometimes seem scary. Many of us have been afraid of the dark, but have you ever been afraid of the light?

The darkness seems scary because it’s hard to see what’s around us, but sometimes the light can seem scarier still, because everything’s so easy to see. John 3:19-20 says that the light came into a dark world, but some loved the darkness instead of the light, because they had done evil things, and they knew that the light would expose their evil deeds.

Have you ever felt like that? Have you ever been scared to come to God, because you felt guilty over mistakes you had made, and were afraid that if you came near Him, His light would reveal just how many things you had done wrong? What if I told you that when you feel this way, the best thing you can do is to run to God, and that His light will reveal something far different from what you expect?

If you have received Jesus, then you have been made right with God. All the wrong things you ever have done or will do have been washed away. When you come to God, all His light will reveal is how completely He has forgiven you, and washed away your mistakes!

Don’t be afraid of the light! Step into the light of God, and allow Him to show you that the things you have done wrong have been erased!


I love reading, writing, photography, and music. I started Generation Arise as a way to encourage young people to arise and shine forth the light of God!
