Jesus is the Light of the World

Jesus said in John 8:12, “I am the light of the world.  If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life” (NLT).  Spiritually speaking, the Bible tells us that God and His Son are light, while satan is associated with the domain of darkness.

To come to Jesus is to come out of darkness and into the light.  Notice in the verse above that Jesus says we don’t have to walk in darkness any longer.  That is because for God’s children, Jesus destroys the power of darkness (1 John 3:8) and brings them into the freedom and joy of the light (Isaiah 9:1-7).

It’s the Christmas season.  We celebrate Jesus coming as the ‘Light of the World’.  Let Him illuminate your life and leave darkness behind forever!

Blessings and Merry Christmas!
