THE LIGHT OF LIFE!
“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
AT HIS TABLE!
In order to appreciate this word from Jesus it is important that we are aware of what it is to walk in darkness, to feel that we are spinning out of control in our life, and to have a lack of direction. It is in these times that the very first things we will say are, “Turn the lights on!” or “I can’t see!” or “Which way should we go?” or “Whatch out for those objects in the way!” In these times we are totally lost and helpless! It is a slow moving in life when there is no light, where we rely solely on our other senses such as touch, hearing, smell, or taste so that we can determine what is going on, and because we can’t see with our eyes. When we understand this walking in darkness, we then appreciate light!
Without Jesus there can be no light, there are people that are living in darkness, but they are but dead men walking! Without Jesus there is no awakening to life, just a lonely living, separated from light! Without Jesus we will have darkness, so much so, that we are unable to find our way through life. We only need to follow Jesus and we will never be lost, the way to go will be clear and unrestricted. With Jesus in our life we are able to move freely without obstructions that slow us down, and we have the Light of Life!
This Light of Life is Jesus, as we read,
“Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6
When we have Jesus in our life we are free to see without being encumbered by the obstacles that our enemy places in our way to hinder our progress. With Jesus we are:
SET FREE TO LIVE A LIFE FULL OF THE LIGHT OF JESUS!
