Jesus is The Light of the World
Jesus Is the Light of the World.
Light is a powerful metaphor all throughout Scripture to refer to God’s presence. From the beginning of creation when God said “Let there by light”, to the pillar of fire by night, and the lampstand in the tabernacle & temple, God has revealed Himself as the source of light and life. John connects this theme all throughout His Gospel in reference to Jesus.
This week, In John chapter 8, we see that Jesus says, “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' identity is proclaimed clearly throughout scripture. Now, it is up to each of us to decide, "Do I believe?" and "Will I walk in that light?"
