Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world” – which if it had been uttered by any other human being would be the most preposterous thing a mere human being could say. Yet on the lips of Jesus, He was just being honest…and helpful, when you consider the darkness in which we dwell.
Yesterday’s post (The Sun of Righteousness) has an obvious logical connection with His name “The Light of the World.”
Just to think about Jesus brings brightness into our darkened minds. What darkens our minds? Worries, fears, lusts, desires – which are all oriented around concern for self instead of others.
The brightness of Jesus’ light drives out all these things, if we but embrace this light.
What is the light? His glorious presence…among us. This is His earth. We are His people. He has the right, and even the responsibility, to dwell in our midst. He is here and we should honor Him for it, instead of living like He’s a million miles away.
Acknowledge now the light of His glorious presence and determine to never live without it!
