Jesus spoke to them saying, “I Am the Light of the World. Whoever believes in Me will never walk in darkness but will have the Light of Life.” John 8:12
Everywhere there is light yet we are so accustomed to it that we take it for granted. Light is present and we go about our business each day and into the night. As Jesus speaks, huge golden lamps light the temple interior and His warm words mark the special event, the Festival of Booths. Here, Jesus is brilliantly eloquent as His illuminating imagry gives understanding of who He is, what He is doing, and what He means to us.
Jesus Christ is our everything; just as light helps us to see, so does He. Those who have walked in darkness see a Great Light in Him revealing truth in circumstances, security in His guidance, and peace in the midst of either tradegy or struggle. Jesus is pure right fullness of the source of Loves Light. Jesus is the source- the Alpha, the beginning of our faith and the center of our lives. He is Love; the radiant reflection of our gracious heavenly Father’s compassion.
Believing in Jesus means that you use His Light all the time, day or night. Belief is a verb, an action word. And more than that, it is the understanding that His very Presence is alive with you. Belief is His Light alive so that you use Light, speak Light, show Light to others, and unite Light with other believers everywhere.
