Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12
Light as an attribute of our Lord Jesus is quite instructive. Light is synonymous with life and without it, nothing whatsoever can be done on earth. Jesus is that Light that shines in a dark world.
The importance of light cannot be over emphasized, little wonder why God first created it, that every other thing will become visible y through it. Light brightens and makes things come alive. When light comes up in a dark room, it becomes beautiful and lively. Imagine a country without electricity; imagine if there is no visible light anywhere, the world would obviously be dump and dead with people walking around blind. Light brings peace and calms anxiety.
Now, the whole world is in spiritual darkness. Atrocities are being committed here and there. Evil upon evil are on the increase. The hearts of men and women in their numbers are inherently wicked and strive only for evil deeds.
In a world filled with darkness, Jesus the Light of the world has come to shine and illuminate all the dark areas in people’s lives. Dark areas such as sinful habits and lifestyle, evil bondage and addictions of all kinds.
When light is turned on in a dark room, darkness gives way for it to dominate. So it is with the presence of Jesus Christ in any life that has been smeared with the gloominess of sin. When Jesus comes into the heart of any individual whose heart is full of darkness, He will turn on His light to beautify the life of such a person.
Do you have Jesus in your life? Is His light shining in you? The light of Christ leads to eternal life while darkness in the world leads to eternal damnation. Do not hesitate further; choose Light that you might be saved.
