The light of the World

John 8:12 (NLT) Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”

Do you want light in your life?  Do you want hope, direction and peace.  Jesus has all of these for you and more.  He is the light of the world.  Through Him we have light.  He also said that through Him we are the light.

Matthew 5:14-16 (NLT)

14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.

15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.

16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

We can have the light of Jesus.  We can choose to walk in the light as He is the light.  If you don’t have the light of Jesus, it is simple to get it.  You just need to ask Jesus into your heart.  Ask Him to be your Lord and Savior.  He provides forgiveness for all our sins and wants to give us “New Life and Light”.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (NLT) For God says,

“At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.”

Indeed, the “right time” is NOW.

Today is the day of salvation.

If you know Jesus and still feel you aren’t walking in the light, the Word of god provides the plan so that you will know how to walk in the light:

Ephesians 6:10-17 (NLT)

10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.

12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.

14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.

15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.

16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.

17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

If you need to print this out and read it aloud each day do that.  Put on each part of salvation and prepare to face each day with the armor that Jesus has provided for us.

Be the light of the world today!
