I Am The Light Of The World
“In him was life, and the life was the light of men.” (John 1 v 4)
God spoke and galaxies whirled into place, stars burned the heavens, and planets began orbiting their sun – words of awesome, unlimited unleashed power. God spoke again and the waters and lands were filled with plants and creatures, running, swimming, growing and multiplying – words of animating, breathing, pulsing life. Again he spoke and man was formed, thinking, speaking and loving – words of personal and creative glory. Eternal, infinite, unlimited –He was, is and always will be the creator and Lord of all that exists.
Then God came in the flesh into the universe called planet earth. The mighty creator became a part of creation, limited by time, space and susceptible to age, sickness and death. But Love propelled him, and so He came to rescue and save those who were lost and to give them the gift of eternity. He is Jesus, the Christ.
Christians are not the source of God’s light, we merely reflect that light. Jesus Christ is the true light, because he helps us see our way to God and shows us how to walk along that way. The darkness of evil never has and never will overcome or extinguish God’s light. Jesus Christ is the creator of life, and His life brings light to mankind. In His light, we see ourselves as we really are (sinners in need of a Saviour).
When we follow Jesus, we can avoid walking blindly and falling into sin. God lights the path ahead of us, so we can see how to live. Have you allowed the light of Christ to shine into your life?
Invite Jesus Christ and allow Him to guide your life, and you will never need to stumble in darkness!
