“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).
The Bible teaches that we are all, by nature, in darkness — the mental darkness of ignorance due to our finite perspective and spiritual darkness due to our sinful nature and displayed in our selfish decisions.
But into this completely dark world Jesus steps and declares clearly and boldly, “I am the light.” There is no other source of true wisdom, of genuine goodness, or lasting salvation.
Those who reject Jesus continue in darkness to their own destruction; those who follow Jesus shall not walk in darkness. Those who have Jesus have the light of life.
Consider with us this exclusive claim of Jesus Christ, and what your position is in relation to Him as the Light of the world.
