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. 😀
