Then spake 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 (John 8:12).
The Hebrew writer says that Jesus was the
“brightness of God’s glory” (Hebrews 1:3).
Jesus is the greatest example of an individual
that has shined past the barrier of time and
society. In a brief study of the life of Christ
we find that He was “in all points tempted like
as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15).
The Lord’s challenge in Matthew 5:14-16 is to
be the hope for the world. This means that we
are living the life of Christ as our own lives.
Consider what light can do. Light eliminates
darkness, exposes the darkness, exposes evil,
and shows the way out of darkness. The key
is to follow the life of Christ and be a light
in a dark world.
