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
Where the light of truth shines, darkness must flee.
When the Pharisees brought the woman caught in adultery to Christ, He said, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” Those gathered to stone the woman were convicted by their own consciences, and slithered away until only Christ and the woman remained. The light of truth emanating from Jesus exposed and revealed the darkness of sin in the hearts and lives of the accusers that day. His light overcame their darkness.
It is not enough to look at the light: we must follow it, believe in it and walk in it. It is not only a light for our eyes but for our feet. We have the “light of life”—spiritual life in this world and eternal life in the next. Rejoice that as a born-again believer you never need walk in darkness again! Isaiah 60:1 tells us, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come.”
Light of the world, I will follow You wherever You lead.
I am lost without Your light. I am dead without
Your life. Arise and shine, Lord,
in my life. Amen.
