TOPIC: LIGHT VERSUS DARKNESS
TEXT: John 8:12 “Then spoke 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….”
What is the witness to light? If you look into the sky on a clear night, the moon is shinning. Men have been to the moon and they know it has no light of its own. Also, space around the moon only is in pitch — blackness. We all know of course, that the moon only reflects the light that comes from the sun. If the sunlight passes through the space to reach the moon, why is all the sky dark around the moon? The answer is, “light is invisible’. You only know light is there at all when it strikes an Object. Space is completely empty. There is nothing there to catch the light from the sun, until it reaches the moon. Actually, space is full Of light but it looks dark. The universe if full Of God. He is the Father Of lights” and all light comes from him, but millions walk in profound darkness. How can that be? How can people walk in spiritual darkness when the whole universe is stepped in the light of God? “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full Of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.
If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! ”
Jesus commanded us: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. ”
Later Paul the apostle reminded us “But we all, with unveiled face. Beholding as in a mirror the glory Of the Lord, are being transformed into the image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” .
Let us choose to be reflectors of God’s light in a world of darkness. Through Christ you can be a source of light and life in the darkened world around you!
