Light of the World

I am the light of the world“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” {John 8:12 NIV}

What a comfort, the light of the world has come, in him there is no darkness. The darkness runs in fear of the light and the darkness can no longer consume. Like dawn breaking in a new day, or the hope of light in the darkest night. The Savior comes to bring hope, peace and a safe way.

In him the darkness cannot hold. To walk with him is to step into peace and rest and to step out of fear.

The light of the world declares things as they really are, who I really am, who he really is and his very real calling on my life. And there is no fear in that truth, because in his truth there is perfect grace.

Jesus who is the light of the world shows us all of God’s goodness and the way back to the father. He is the one who comes and declares, that he is the way back to God, fulfilling the desire to know who you were created to be, sons and daughters of the King of Kings.

For me walking in this truth, that Jesus is the light of the world has meant that even in the darkest moments, there is one who knows me, one who sees and one who made a way for me, when I couldn’t see the way myself. It has meant understanding who he is and what he has called me to do. To continue to bring light, hope, peace and rest when people feel like hope has run out, to remind them that they are not alone. There is one who sees them, one who knows them and one who loves them, the light of the world who shines a way even in the darkness.

Love, Grace and Hope for your day
