Light Of The World

Jesus is the light of the world. He was sent into the world to cast out darkness: to point people to God, to call people to repentance for their sins, and to empower His followers to do good works that bring glory to God.

John 8:12 says, “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.”

As faithful followers of Jesus we are called to live according to God’s standards and as a result of that act of obedience we too become the light of the world (His hands and feet), pointing others to God’s greatness, faithfulness, and forgiveness.

Matthew 5:14-16 confirms, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

My brothers and sisters, they’re several other passages of text (approx 25) about the light of the world that will encourage you and I to confront spiritual darkness through faith in Jesus Christ. So never forget that as the world becomes darker, Christ light always shines brighter!
