‘Light of the world, you stepped down into darkness’
Jesus is the Light of the World! John’s gospel compares the coming of Christ into the world with the Creation of the Universe. Just as God flung the stars to illuminate the night sky, John’s gospel declares that ‘the light (Jesus) shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it!’ (John 1v5)
C.S Lewis says “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
Jesus is that true light that brings light and life to all!
“The true light that gives light to all people was coming into the world.” John 1v9
Challenge: Pray for someone today who is facing a dark situation and ask God how you can bring light to their life.
Prayer: Jesus, light of the world, bring light to our dark world, remind us today that Light overcomes Darkness, in Jesus name! Amen!
