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 an analogy rather 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 the light. Light drives away darkness; darkness cannot drive away light.
Only the Light can open their eyes; where light is, darkness cannot remain. We cannot have any “Jesus” in us and not have some light that can be shared. Do any of you remember the little 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.”
Are you shining with the light of Jesus? Even if you feel like your light is small, it will be effective where Jesus puts you.
