Read John 11:8-15
Jesus replied, “There are twelve hours of daylight every day. During the day people can walk safely. They can see because they have the light of this world. But at night there is danger of stumbling because they have no light.” – John 11:9-10 (NLT)
Light encourages accountability. This is true in the ordinary physical world, but it is also true in our spiritual walk. When we are walking in the light of Christ, we tend to recognize our accountability to God. If we let ourselves drift away into spiritual darkness, it becomes easier to rationalize sinful desires and actions. This is why staying connected to Christ is so important.
