Psalm 119:105 & 130 John 8:12a, NIV 2011
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light to my path.
The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
When Jesus spoke again to the people he said, “I am the light of the world.
God’s Word is the road map for His faithful to follow. Proverbs 6:23, “For this command is a lamp, this teaching is a light, and correction and instruction are the way of life.” God’s Word ignites a light within the hearts of believers. Proverbs 20:27, “The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord that sheds light on one’s inmost being.” God’s Word reveals His Truths yielding understanding. Psalm 19:7, “The statues of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.” Jesus is the Light to a lost and dying World. God’s Light for the world is found in Jesus Christ.
Isaiah told the Israelites they would be “a light for the Gentiles.” Only God’s Light removes a person’s blindness to the truth. Jesus came bringing God’s Light to life. Until Jesus, no one lived a sinless life. He stated He was “the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Living for Jesus I must shine His Light daily. My mother shined the Light of Jesus, as do my sisters because God’s Light resides within us.
How is God’s Light visible to others?
Shining His Light together,
