Light of the World – John 8:12
Our Savior is the Light of the world. Those who follow Him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life (John 8:12).
The Light of the World lives inside of us, making us, in turn, a light in a dark place (Matthew 5:14). We shine forth His glory and grace, reflecting to the world a glimpse of who He is. Just as the moon has no light of its own, but rather reflects to the world the light of the sun, our light is not of ourselves. Rather, we reflect the light of the Sun of Righteousness (Malachi 4:2). Because of the grace He has shown to us, we can show grace to others. Because of the love He has given us, we can give out love to those around us. Because we have freely received, we can freely give (Matthew 10:8).
Jesus’ light makes us shine. The light of His love and grace is upon us, attracting those around us, and pointing them to Him. They will notice that there’s something different about us, and want what we have.
The Light of the World lives in us, causing us to shine forth His glory. We reflect His brilliance to those around us, pointing them to Him. Know that His light is upon you. Allow it to shine through you every day!
“Light of the World, You stepped down into darkness. Opened my eyes, let me see beauty that made this heart adore you, hope of a life spent with you.”
