Bible Reading: John 1: 1 - 10
Topic: Jesus The Light Of The World
Light is essential to our daily lives.
If we try to walk at night in an unfamiliar environment without any source of light, we are likely to encounter untold difficulties.
In today's reading, John introduces Jesus both as Word and Light.
God created all things by means of His Word (Ps. 33: 9; 148: 5)
Just as the Word manifests Himself in nature and indeed all creation so also He ought to manifest in our everyday lives.
John also calls Jesus the Light of the men because He points humanity to God and reveals everything about God: holiness, purity, righteousness e.t.c.
He makes clear the meaning of life as well as how to live a purposeful life.
When Christ lives in us, we also live in Him and we in a sense become the light of the world pointing others to Christ.
When the Light of God comes into our lives, darkness is expelled and we receive an enablement to shine in this world of darkness (Lk. 8: 16)
As a child of God, you are connected to the Light, this enables you to walk in the Light that means to live righteously.
Insist today on walking in the light and eliminating the darkness of sin and satanic activities
May Your Light so shine in my life that the world around me may see You, Amen.
