Jesus Is the Light

by | Apr 23, 2009 | Faith, Jesus & the Gospel, Spirit-Led Living

John 1:1-28 John begins his letter with the words “In the beginning was the Word.” The Word was Jesus. He is the living Word. The Father is a Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the breath of God and Jesus is the Word of God. The Word of God took the form of flesh and came to live here on earth. I like to say God decided to put on an earth suit so He could come live with us. Jesus was with the Father from the foundation of the earth. When God said, “Let there be light,” the light of Jesus began to shine on this earth. Jesus is the true Light that lights every man who comes into the world.

Science is always proving the Bible to be correct. With the recent development of test tube babies, an interesting occurrence happens at the time sperm meets with egg. Observers noticed that the moment sperm meets egg, a flash of light occurs. That light is the Light that lights every man who comes into the world. Jesus is present at every conception because He is life. At the moment of conception Light has shown into darkness. The sad part is that many have chosen to walk in darkness.

Jesus is still bringing the light of His countenance to us daily. In my witnessing to people I have noticed that those who receive Christ suddenly glow like a light bulb. Jesus has shone out of darkness into their hearts to give them light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. When I had a vision of Jesus’ face, I asked Him why I could not take a picture of His face to the whole world because I knew when they saw the love in His eyes they would instantly repent. He spoke this to my heart: “I have not chosen to reveal Myself in this way to the world. I have chosen to reveal Myself through My body on earth (the church). You are the one to show My face through your face to the world.”

David writes that the Lord is the light of His countenance. When our son Ron was in China teaching, several of his students would come up and ask him, “What makes your face shine?” Ron was shining the light of Jesus to China, a very dark land. “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us” (2 Cor. 4:6-7, KJV).

Lord, let the light of Your countenance always be upon me. Today I want to allow Your light to shine out of my heart and face to others.
