Hold The Light
John 12:27-36 (35)
Then Jesus told them,
“The light is among you for a short time.
Walk as if you hold the light, so that the grasping darkness can’t get a grip on you.
Walking in company with darkness,
you do not know where you are being led.”
The above is the result of pondering the meaning of the Greek words, in Mounce’s Reverse Interlinear translation.
I don’t have a whole lot more to say, except that I really like the images of ‘holding’ the light, and of ‘grasping darkness.’
