Light was created before the plants and
animals because they needed light in order to live. Light is needed not only to live but
to see. In actuality we don't really see anything anyway but a reflection of light off
another object. Fallen man is in a state of darkness, unable to see his sins because there
is no light to reflect on them. That doesn't mean the sins are not there, just that they
need light to be shed on them to be seen. Jesus, the Light of the World, does just that,
and a whole lot more. He lights the way to eternal life. When one accepts Him, He fills
that person with light and creates a beacon through that person to the rest of the world
lost in darkness.
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
And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from
his birth. 2 And his disciples asked
him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? 3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned,
nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while
it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle,
and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation,
Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that
Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is
this Son of man? 35 Then Jesus said
unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest
darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. 36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that
ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide
himself from them.
Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth
not on me, but on him that sent me. 45
And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. 46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not
abide in darkness.
I will live my life in the Light of Jesus
Christ, knowing that in Him I can not walk in darkness. By walking in His Light, Christ
can be reflected through me and become a Light for others. Therefore, I need to keep my
eyes focused on Him each day so that all I see is Jesus, the Light of the World.
