Jesus is THE LIGHT of the world

Come To The Light

For many of us lately, our days have been dark, depressive, and maybe full of worry, fear, and anxiety.  Well, there is good news.

No matter how much darkness we are living in or how many dark days we experience, THE LIGHT continues to shine and no one can put it out.  Why is that?  Because

JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

And THE LIGHT shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:5) This light can never be extinguished.

This light has been there from the beginning. 

Do you realize that although Jesus came in the flesh as a baby, that He was also there at the beginning.  In the beginning God created (Gen.1:1) … and then He said let there be light.  There was light before the sun, moon, and stars.  Jesus is The LIGHT.  He was with God in the beginning. – In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. (John 1:1)

COME TO THE LIGHT

Come to Jesus and He will give you light. 

John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light

But, the wicked do not want to come.  They hate the light because their deeds are evil.  They don’t want their deeds to be exposed.   The Light of God’s Word condemns the wicked and exposes what is in the heart. 

John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

GOOD NEWS

Jesus did not come to condemn.  Because of our sin, we are condemned already.  He came to save us.  Come to Him. Come to THE LIGHT.  He will save you now. 

John 3:17-18 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

The evil intentions of men will be exposed when the light shines on them, for the light makes everything visible.

God’s Word says:

Awake! Arise!

Christ shall give thee light (Ephesians 5:13-14)

 

Arise! Shine!

For thy light is Come  (Isaiah 60:1)

 

Jesus will chase the gloom away.  He can brighten your dark days.

I wandered in the shades of night,
Till Jesus came to me,
And with the sunlight of His love
Bid all my darkness flee.

Since the Savior found me, took away my sin,
I have had the sunlight of His love within.

-Judson W. Van DeVenter, 1897

As John Newton Said

I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see.  Has the light shined on You and exposed your wicked heart.  Jesus came to save lost sinners.  Just as He healed the blind man, he can heal any of us from our sin blinded hearts.  Won’t you come to THE LIGHT today?
