The very first words we read that God speaks in the Bible are, 'Let there be light' – Genesis 1:3. Amidst all of the darkness of creation God speaks light, and there was light; and it was good. Whenever we see darkness we must remember that with God there is light; and that light is life.
But at this time of the year we can often forget this truth. Jesus is the light of the world, and the light of the world has overcome the darkness. Darkness cannot exist in the same place as light. The darkness has to flee.
As Halloween comes around, we believe the lies that the darkness is strong and we should fear it. We see creepy costumes, deathly decorations and scary snacks and we see so many people reveling in fear, and we forget that we do not need to fear. We do not need to hide. We do not need to cower until it is all over. Tonight is not a time to hid our light or be fearful. There is no room for darkness and fear, where love and light have taken up residence.
Be a light in the darkness around you.
