I AM the Light of the World - April 18, 2021
Light is something we take for granted, don’t we? We expect the sun to rise each day and light our earth. We expect the street lamps to come on at night. We expect the lights to come on when we throw the switch in the rooms in our homes. Light is something we truly do take for granted.
There are two types of light in the world. We can perceive one, or both, or neither! When we are born into this world, we perceive physical light, and by it we learn of our Creator’s handiwork in the things we see. A baby born into this world is so inquisitive looking around at all the physical things he or she sees. It is a big, bright beautiful world!
In the gospel of John, as Jesus was revealing Himself more and more to the world, He identified Himself saying, “I AM the Light of the World.” As great as physical light is, the greater light is spiritual. When Jesus was born, His incarnation brought
Spiritual Light into a dark world. He continues to bring Spiritual Light into a shadowy, bleak world. That is what He is saying in our text today. Jesus is saying that He is the light of the world and He brings spiritual light wherever there is spiritual darkness.
