HE is our Light!

The power of light is so pronounced when you lit up a candle in the darkness. You can see how the light seeps thru the darkness wading away the fear and grim it could bring. Not just the things around us can be seen, one can see himself with that light.

 John 8:12
Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life”.

When Jesus said he is the LIGHT, he meant in many different terms
1.       Light illuminates driving away the darkness
2.       Light “Shows” the real nature you and the surrounding
3.       Light can be seen from any where
4.       Light travels at the speed of 1860000 miles/sec.  (Proving the point that Time & Space is in His hand. )

But there is more. If you find a right object to reflect the light, things around can be lit for further to a  higher degree.

When LORD say HE is the Light, HE wants us not just to be a consumer or a witness of the light like pitch black vessel that can absorb the light and cannot emit back any of it. But HE call us to be a shiny surface.  Only a clean well-polished surface/vessel can reflect the light. HE clearly says  in John8:12 “he who follows Me”  i.e  he who reflect HIM in daily walk and talk can bring more light and would have eternal life!

2 Timothy 2:20-22
In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work. Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart

James 4:8
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

When we get closer to him, we need to cleanse and be purified to reflect him.

In this New Year, Let the LORD of heavenly lights fill us with HIS Light for HIS glory!
