"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world; he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." John 8:12
IN JESUS TODAY!
We all know that without light we cannot see, darkness comes and it becomes dangerous for us to move about. Although this is not the same type of light that Jesus is referring to here, the light that helps us to see in the natural comes from either electricity, or the sun, moon, or the stars, but the light that Jesus is referring to here is a much greater source of light. This light is generated from truth. Truth is the light of the world and it disperses darkness and the lies that are dispatched from darkness whenever it is present! Jesus is that truth! He is the truth of the world and we need him, as it is written, "And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." John 8:32
Without Jesus, without the truth, the world is full of darkness and in bondage to its power, and whenever there is only darkness we have only chaos and the world becomes a very dangerous place. As Jesus light strengthens in us there is more freedom, peace, and security, but as Jesus' light decreases in the world and truth is denied, chaos comes in and rules. When we have fellowship with the truth we take on the light of Jesus and become lights ourselves as we read, "Ye are the light of the world, a city that is set on a hill cannot be hid." Mathew 5:14
It is important to know that your time spent with the truth of God, with Jesus the light of the world, increases light for all, and when our fellowship with Jesus is broken our light becomes weak and can even disappear. Be the difference in the world, spend time with Jesus and learn of His truths!
