The Light

The Light

Regular,  everyday sunlight  gives life.     It gives life  to all sorts  of plants  through the process  of photosynthesis.     It gives a healthy life  to all sorts of animals,  promoting strong bones  and a good vascular system  —  not to mention giving each one  of us  an all-over healthy life.     It has been noted  that many people  become depressed  and sickly  without enough sunlight.     We can even say  no sunlight  —  equals no plant life  —  equals no food  for us  —  and no food  for many animals.

We need light  to live.

Light is also  what we must have  to get around  in darkness.     Stumbling around  in darkness  can be downright dangerous.     With all these facts  in mind,  Jesus shows  that it is absolutely vital  for us  to have spiritual light  —  if we want  to live eternally.     Since we are  rather blinded  by the darkness  of all the sin we live in,  Jesus says  to us  in John 8:12,

I am the light  of the world;  he who follows Me  shall not walk  in the darkness,  but shall have  the light  of life.

Jesus is so much more  than the light  that shows us  the way  through this dark world  of sin.     Like the sun  that gives us light  to see where we are going  and also gives life  to plants  —  Jesus lights up  our way  through this dark world  of sin  and also  gives us eternal life.

There is  no eternal life  without Jesus.     Nothing  can substitute  for Jesus.

All sorts  of people  in this world  will claim  that they have spiritual light  —  that they know how  to be good enough  for heaven  all by themselves  —  that they have had  spiritual experiences  that have shown them  they are  on the right track  to eternal life  as they understand it.     But,  that is not so  because Jesus says  in John 14:6,

I am the way,  and the truth,  and the life;  no one comes  to the Father,  but through Me.

Since Jesus  has proven  through many prophecies  that He is the Savior,  it would be wise  to open our eyes  to the facts  He sets before us.     Let Him  be our Light.     Only Jesus  can give us life  —  and He gives it freely  to all  who put their faith  in Him.

With Jesus  giving us  the light  of life”,  we can also sing  with King David  in Psalm 56:13,

You have delivered  my soul  from death,
Indeed  my feet  from stumbling,
So that I may walk  before God
In the light  of the living.

We will live  when we let Jesus  give us  His light  of salvation.     What a relief  it is  to get some Light!     With Jesus  as our  light  of life”,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  it is so good  to walk  in Your light  and know  the goodness  of Your salvation.”

Love,
