There’s an old story of a man who was walking at night, and saw another man searching for something near a lamp post. Approaching, he asked the man what he was looking for, and the man, without looking up, replied, “My watch”. The first man asked, “Well, precisely where were you standing when you dropped it?” Continuing his search, the man pointed a finger in the distance and said, “Over there somewhere.” disbelieving, the first man said, “Well then sir, why are you looking for it here?” Finally looking up in frustration and meeting the first man’s gaze, the searcher replied testily, “Because sir, the light is better here!”
Jesus Christ is the “Light of the world” not the light switch. Yet, so many people are trying to USE Jesus. They only want light when they cannot see their own way. They want Jesus to solve their problem. They want Jesus to fix their marriage or meet some other need. But they refuse the Light when He tries to direct their lives.
