The light of the world… John 8:12

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

My Pondering:

Yes, indeed Jesus proclaimed and His Father backed His Son.

Please allow me to pose a few questions to you.

Do you think the fact that we only have one sun in this world is coincidence?

Is the sun a sufficient light?

Can you find some darkness and hide from the light?

The is one moon, one devil. Satan has not power like the Son. Only the Son is the source of light. The moon is deceptive, constantly changing.

What happens to darkness when light comes?

So then, which is greater?

Do you ‘know’ that God proclaimed He has one Son?

In your heart of hearts, have you said, yes and embraced the Light?

Everything God has created has a purpose within. Just as there is a silver lining behind every dark cloud. It’s there. Having a proper perspective, prayer and plenty of persistence will reveal it.

Yes, His light, that of the world, is sufficient. Yes, we can remain in darkness and ignore His call. Yes, every person must decide for him/her self. Yes, darkness flees from light. Yes, Lord Jesus. Yes, you are the visible manifestation of the one true God.

We can gleam from this passage that there is just one light. Jesus did not say He was one of many lights. He is the one Son. Not one of many.

The light is for all to see. Seeing alone is not sufficient. He tells us we must follow. Whoever sees and follows has the light of life.

The most well know verse of all, John 3:16, is good news indeed but just 3 verses past in 19 we read, “And this is the verdict: The Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness more than light, because their deeds were evil.”

For if Jesus has not come after us, due to original sin from Genesis, we would all be hopeless and in the dark. This is why Jesus is called the 2nd Adam. He is the fix for the 1st. The great patch!

The light is sufficient but the night is coming.

The Word says,

So Jesus told them, “For a little while longer, the Light will be among you. Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of light.” After Jesus had spoken these things, He went away and hid Himself from them.”

John 12:35-36

Just sitting still in the dark isn’t an viable option. We must walk by the light while we have it. In order to be children of God, sons of light, we MUST find the faith to believe.

Be still and hear; focus and see.

Get up and walk!

My prayer: LORD, thank YOU! Christ, thank YOU!! Holy Ghost, thank YOU!!!
