When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said,
“I amthe Light of the world.
Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the Light of Life.”
In a darkened room, the flickering flame of one small candle can illuminate the entire space. On a grander scale, God used a pillar of fire at night to guide the people of Israel through the wilderness. As they roamed through the desert on their journey to the Promised Land, they never had to take a step in darkness. When the pillar of fire moved, they followed. It was an ever-present symbol of God’s presence, protection and guidance in their lives.
Jesus came to illuminate the darkness of the entire world. He brought God’s presence, protection and guidance to each one of us. Do you follow the Light of Life? Is He the light of your world?
