The Light of the World

The Holy Bible: The Good news Translation

John 8:12 (Key verses)

12 Jesus spoke to the Pharisees again. “I am the light of the world,” he said. “Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.”

My Thoughts:
(How Can I apply what God is saying here to my life today?)

Christ is the Light of the world. God is light, and Christ is the image of the invisible God. One sun enlightens the whole world, and so does one Christ. What a dark dungeon would this world be without the sun! A friend of mine recently gave me a glimpse of what it was like last winter when the weather was so bad outside, that he and his wife could not get out and travel to town for almost 2 weeks. He was depressed, because his world felt very dark. This is exactly how the world would be without Jesus, by whom light came into the world. Those who follow Christ shall not walk in darkness. They shall not be left without the truths which are necessary to live a godly life. Are you comforted in knowing the Son, friend? Just as my friend found a bright hope in finally being able to get out of his home and travel to town, you can find an even brighter hope in knowing Jesus – the Light of the world. Please consult with a local Bible teaching pastor for help in knowing this Jesus, or feel free to contact me using the email address noted below. Brighten your day and brighten your future, by know my Jesus, the Light of the world, and my hope for eternal life in heaven!

My Prayer
(What I will ask of God, in order for me to properly apply His Word to my life)

Lord Jesus, You provide joy for my day, happiness in my relationships, and unending peace in knowing that I have a hope and I have a future, because I know You, the Son, who made the path for me to enter heaven one day and be with You eternally. That really brightens my day and gives me hope even among all the darkness that I see and hear all around me in this old world. What have I done to deserve this? Absolutely nothing, it is all mine because of my faith in You and the gift You provided for me on the cross at Calvary. Thank You for loving me enough to do this, and for giving, and blessing me with Your grace!
