Robert Louis Stevenson was a 19th century Scottish writer notable for such novels as Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. One night, as a boy, Stevenson watched darkness envelope the city. His nurse urged him to sit down, because he could not see anything outside. Robert replied, “I can see something wonderful. A man is coming down the street making holes in the darkness.” He was referring to the lamp lighter. When light is turned on in a room, darkness vanishes. Solomon wrote in the book of Proverbs, “ the way of the wicked is like deep darkness. They do not know what makes them stumble.” True, but how wonderful to learn that Jesus wrote, “I am the light of the world. He that follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.” When we enter into a personal relationship with Christ, Acknowledging our spiritual darkness, He brings forgiveness and light into our lives.
