I AM — The Light of the World!

Day 2242: Happy birthday to my beautiful wife, Linda!

Scripture:  Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”   “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” John 8:12; 9:5

Thoughts/questions: Jesus referred to Himself as The Light of the World the first time after the religious folks brought Him a woman who had been caught in adultery. Jesus then made that famous statement, “He who is without sin among you, cast the first stone.”

Light – it’s God given purpose is to allow all of us to properly interact with our surroundings. Without light, we would be in serious trouble. With light, we can appropriate function! Jesus soon realized that those who brought the woman to Him were acting in darkness.

Their darkness was that they were blinded by their self righteousness. Jesus disagreed. His light shines on ALL of our sin making us equal in the sight of Almighty God and in need of a Savior, not punishment or fixing!

Let His light shine on your path and guide you; let His light shine on your sin as you realize your need for His gift of salvation; and let His light shine on your relationships and behave appropriately!

He has brought us out of darkness and into His marvelous light!!!

Suggested prayer: Dear Jesus, thank You for Your light, so that darkness does not overwhelm me . . .
