“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)

john-8-12“And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.” John 3:19-20 (ESV)

John seems to be telling us why we are FRIGHTENED BY THE LIGHT and enjoy the darkness. LIGHT convicts and condemns our character. LIGHT takes us to the next level on this journey God has placed us own.

It is the light that when we are in darkness, brightens a path that leads to Calvary where we are then brought in direct contact with the cross of Christ that most are unwilling to carry. “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5 (ESV)

As Children of the King our eye sight have become accustomed to the darkness, for light brings about faith in the precepts in Light of the WorldGod’s word which is not in character with the lifestyle we have become accustomed to living in the darkness. The light begins to clarify and purify our Christian values.

So my friends if we are serious about our Salvation and life eternal then we must become Passionate about the Light of Christ, it must become real as we seek His presence each day as we begin to clean up our bad habits that represent the darkness of this world.

For every action of darkness that the god of this world tries to bring into our life there must be an overpowering, opposite  reaction from the Spirit of God that keeps our eyes on life eternal and the light of God’s word that will take us to His kingdom if we give it all to the Master.

The thinking process that brings about darkness in our life can only change according to our behavior and relationship toward God. If we keep walking in darkness and ignoring the light, nothing changes. Light denotes living through CHRIST and life, Darkness denotes our desire for the things of this world and death.

John8v12If we live as He lived, then we see the light and we become like him as he cleanses us from all darkness. This is what walking in the light is and once we begin to walk in the light we begin to produce fruit meaning others will begin to see God’s light through us.

“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all….But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:5-7 (ESV)

Now through Christ we have become “light barriers” we don’t produce the light for only God can do that but  through us others can see the source of all light, they see hope in “the fullness and admonition of Jesus Christ who saves us from our sins” So we now through Christ have become “the light of the world.” A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Nor (can we as God’s chosen generation who represent the light of Christ) if we put the light of our Faith under a basketJohn812 (it will be hid from sight), but if we place it on a stand (where the world can see), it gives light to all our friends, family, love one’s, neighbors, co-workers, and a world that has lost its “spiritual compass” and have no way of finding their way out of the darkness.

Our Savior has given us a mandate and that is to, live in the LIGHT and “let your LIGHT shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matt. 5:14-16 (KJV)

“For (one day) we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the (LIGHT OR DARKNESS,) whether good or evil. 2 Cor. 5:10 (ESV)


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
