“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
Light speaks of life, knowledge, and holiness. Darkness speaks of death, ignorance and sin. When we follow Jesus, we will walk in life not death, in knowledge not ignorance, and in holiness and not sin. As followers of Jesus, we also have light of life.
Matthew 5:14-16 says “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
“God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5). Let us follow the divine Light and let our lights shine forth so that we will be the light that shows others the way to abundant life.
