Jesus 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
Praise God! On the fourth day God said, Let there be light, and there was light. God set the lights in the sky to light the earth, to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:17,18 When the lights are switched on in a room, we can see everything in it like what things are there and who are all in the room, each and everything is exposed. Even a thief doesn’t come to steal in the day light because he may get caught. When our life is full of light without any darkness in it, then our life will be a testimony before others, it is possible only through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. John 3:19 Men who are involved in the evil things do not want their deeds to be exposed, even now we can see that gangs who are working against the truth love to be in the underground darkness not wanting to expose themselves. But whoever lives a truthful life need not hide themselves but can come to the light so others can see that they live a pure life according to the will of God. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. 1 John 1:6 Living a truthful life is possible only by the grace of God, as we abide in His love and have fellowship with Him!
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105 Living according to God’s word is very important for us to shine brightly. God’s word says that the eye is the lamp of the body, if our eyes are good, our whole body will be full of light. But if our eyes are bad, our whole body will be full of darkness. The physical eyes give light to the body but when our Spiritual eyes are enlightened then we will come to know the truth and the truth will set us free. God is our everlasting light, He has made his light to shine in our hearts and He wants us to live as children of light because earlier we were in darkness but now we have the light of life.
