Jesus Is The Light Of The World

Throughout Scripture, darkness often represents evil and falsehood while light represents goodness, truth, and holiness. We naturally fill our homes with light and do our best to avoid dark places where danger may linger in the shadows.

Therefore it comes as no surprise that Jesus assumes the title, “I Am the Light of the World.” Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the life of life. (John 8:12) But there is more to that statement than we may first realize.

Jesus illuminates our lives with His brilliance, shining into every nook and cranny. Even the revelation of hidden sin is a gift, like the fortunate early diagnosis of a daily cancer. He reveals not only our sins but also all that is a beautiful surrounding us. He awakens our souls to see the history of redemption and the wonderful works of God all around us. As David says, “In your light we see light. (Psalm 36:9)

Those who believe in Jesus will go to be with Him. At death, those separated from Him enter darkness and gloom, but we will live in everlasting light and joy with Jesus. This truth gives us hope because no matter how gloomy our lives may be this side of eternity, we know that our destination is in the kingdom of light, where there will be no night, no darkness, no tears, and no distress.

As Jesus is the Light of the World, so He sends us as lights into the world to illuminate our surroundings with His love and life. Just as the moon reflects the sun’s light, so we also reflect Jesus’ light, loving our families and our neighbors, serving our church and community with our spiritual gifts and sharing truth in love in a bleak world.
