Do you like to eat potato chips? I sure do. Have you ever been going through a bag of potato chips and come across a chip with green spots on it? Did you eat it? You might have thrown it away. Well, green potato chips won't hurt you. There's a simple explanation why they're green. Potatoes grow under ground, in the dark. But sometimes, a potato accidentally pokes up through the ground while it's growing. The light of the sun touches the potato and changes its color. It's kind of like a potato sunburn. It doesn't hurt anything. The sunlight just leaves a spot of green on the potato, that's all.
Just like sunlight touching a potato changes it, our lives change when they're touched by Jesus. In the Bible, Jesus is called the light of the world. And when we have Jesus in our hearts, His love touches everything we do and changes it. We have more peace, more joy, more hope, more love when we ask Jesus into our hearts.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life
- John 8:12 (New International Version)
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, We thank you for touching our life through Jesus our Savior. We pray that those around us will see that you have touched our life and changed us. In Jesus’s Name, Amen.
