“The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (John 1:5).

The eye of an artist perceives light and shadows in a way that others do not. The same should be said of the followers of Christ; that in a world filled with darkness, where oppressive shadows seek to confuse, discourage, and blind us, our eyes are aware of the Light that illuminates a path of hope. The verb tense of today’s passage is a reminder that the Light of Christ isn’t limited to a past tense point of reference but is a continuing present tense reality, even on the darkest of days.
