“Jesus shouted to the crowds, “If you trust Me, you are trusting not only Me, but also God who sent Me. For when you see Me, you are seeing the One who sent Me. I have come as a light to sine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in Me will no longer remain in the dark.”
Have you ever stood outside on a cold winter’s day and actually felt the warmth of the sun’s rays shining down on you so strongly, that you have forgotten it was winter? In fact, the warmth of the sun’s rays was so strong that you couldn’t even feel the winter’s chill. It’s a strange feeling right? Yet there is some significance in this analogy for our own lives.
Jesus, time and time again, said of Himself, that He was and is the light of the world. He came so that we would no longer have to live in darkness. Moreover, His light exposes our sins, which leads us to repentance. When we are restored in Him, we too become beacons of His light and stand bringing glory to the Father.
Jesus’ light is much like the sun’s rays on a cold winter’s day. All around us might be calamity, darkness and we may feel deserted in a dark tunnel, but it is then that Jesus’ light shines around us and brings us direction and comfort. When we are filled with the light of God, we too can face darkness and prevail; not in our strength but because the light of world ‘JESUS CHRIST’ shines in us and through us. May we forever stand in the warmth and comfort of His light and may we too shine His light!
