DRAWN TO THE LIGHT
John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ ”
The Scene: a small, single light bulb shining in a darkened room, that has just enough foot candles/lumens to enable someone to see.
Have you ever noticed that when there is a light shining in a dark place your eye is drawn to that light? Jesus is the Creator of light. He is the light.
2 Corinthians 4:6 “For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness, made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.’ ”
Those who have chosen to live for Jesus have His light shining in them. They are the light shining on a hill. Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Ephesians 5:8-11 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”
Light is a powerful medium; the source of light is even more powerful.
Isaiah 60:20 “Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.”
Psalm 112:4 ” Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.”
