“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’.” John 8:12

 

Darkness is defined as the absence of light. The darkest and emptiest places in the universe are called voids. According to researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, our very own Milky Way galaxy may float near the center of one of these voids. Why? Of course, scientists have all kinds of explanations. We know that the very faintest flicker of light can be seen in the dark. Is it just possible that God put us in one of the darkest regions of the universe so that we could better see the celestial lights of His creation? Our location within a galactic void gives astronomers the opportunity to make all kinds of observations and take measurements not possible in other areas of the universe. Sadly, what God gave mankind as glimpses of the Creator has been used to cast Him aside.

The passage above reminds us that Jesus is the Light of the world. However, few people

today know the Light or walk in the Light. Jesus came to bring light to all mankind by overcoming the darkness brought about by satan. Scripture plainly reveals to us that the true Light came into the world yet, although the world was made by Him, the world did not and has not recognized Him. Why? “People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19). This passage clearly reveals our need for Jesus!

As we begin to celebrate another Christmas season, it is imperative that we understand that the Light of the world has come to bring hope and salvation to a dark world. This makes us mindful of the lyrics to a song by Chris Tomlin:

                         Light of the world, You step down into darkness,

                         Opened my eyes let me see.

                         Beauty that made this heart adore You,

                         Hope of a life spent with You.

As children of light, may we be diligent about sharing Jesus (the Light of the world) to a dark and evil world.

                                                                                                                          We love you,

                                                                                                                           Brad and Virginia
