Awaken

The symbolism of darkness and light is a common technique in all art forms. Antagonists (the “bad guys”) are often cast in dark clothing or shadow. Bright brush strokes represent goodness and hope. There is something about this contrast that draws our attention, heightens our senses, and begs to be seen. 

The Gospel of John uses this symbolism throughout its narrative to direct us to the deeper realities of truth versus falsehood and life versus death. As we journey through the season of Lent to Easter, we will examine several stories from the Gospel of John that illustrate this tension between light and darkness. Jesus, the Light of the world, came so we might be drawn out of our darkness and into His glorious light. 

Lent reminds us of the hope we all have in Christ. Lent concludes with Easter Sunday—a powerful reminder that God’s “yes” to life is louder than death’s “no.” Jesus has not abandoned us in our sin and death, but He came so that we may have life and have it abundantly (John 10:10). Jesus, the Light of the world, conquered the darkness of death.
