The Light

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

John 8:12



It has been said that “darkness is the absence of light.” Throughout Scripture, darkness and light are set apart as opposing forces—with darkness representing the forces of sin and evil, and light representing the love, righteousness, and faithfulness of God, revealed ultimately in Jesus Christ.


In John 8:12, The Lord Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Earlier in the book of John, the Lord Jesus is described as “the light of all mankind” (John 1:4).


When sin entered the world, darkness entered with it. But darkness would not rule forever, because God promised to send the light. When Jesus was born, the light of God shone in the darkness of this broken world. Sadly, many did not fully recognize Jesus as the true light (John 1:5 & 9-10).


In John 8, the Lord describes Himself as “the light of the world.” Jesus Christ came to bring the true light into the darkness. And He tells us that if we follow Him, we will never be in the dark “but will have the light of life” with us always.


Now that's enough to brighten any February Day.

Read

John 8:1-12.

Prayer

Dear Lord God, Thank You, that Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, is indeed the Light of the world. Thank You, that although I was once in darkness, the Light of the world, the Lord Jesus, shine His light into my life and saved me. Amen.
