JESUS – THE LIGHT

Jesus light

NAMES OF JESUS IN THE FIRST CHAPTER OF JOHN

# 3  HE WAS CALLED LIGHT:

John 1:3-9 and 8:12 “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness; but will have the light of life.”

Light is used here as more of a title than a name of Jesus.  It is one of the easier terms to understand.    The fact is that those who walk in darkness cannot understand the things of Light. If they had light they would not be in darkness since no darkness can dwell in light.  Light drives away darkness; darkness cannot drive away light.  Only the Light can open their eyes; where light is, darkness cannot remain.

2 Corinthians 4:4  The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 

We cannot have any “Jesus” in us and not have some light that can be shared.

John 8:12  “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Do any of you know the song called, This Little Light of Mine?  “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.” – “Hide it under a bushel, No” – “Shine all over the neighborhood” – “Won’t let satan blow it out” – “Let it shine ‘til Jesus comes”

My great-grands got me hooked on this.  😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
