Joh 8:12

Post by Ilze on Sun 2 Nov 2008 - 19:48

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


Jesus Christ is the light of the world. What does this mean?

Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." Jesus Christ shines light into our lives. Just as sunlight brightens up the day with warm colors, so Jesus brings joy and love and peace into our lives. Just as sunlight reveals things, so Jesus in His love reveals things so we can see clearly from God’s perspective what is true in our lives.

Just as light dispels darkness, so Jesus causes the dark things in our lives to flee. Someday in heaven, Jesus will be our true light. The Bible says heaven will “not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.”

Finally, Jesus Christ is the light of the world because He, and He alone, is the true source of all that is good and righteous and holy in the world. God alone is the source of all that is good. If you have the light of Jesus shining in your life, then let that light bring joy, and truth, and healing, and revelation to you — and let that light shine into all the world around you! God wants us to be a clear windowpane so the light of Jesus shines through us to others.
