I am the light of the world

“I am the light of the world” John 8:12

The Old Testament says, “The Lord is my light” (Psalm 27:1) and “the Lord will be your everlasting light” (Isaiah 60:20). With these words, Jesus claimed to be God in the flesh. He was fully human but at the same time fully God.

As God He shines His light (i.e. truth) into every part of our lives. There is no hiding or escaping. When we line up our lives with His truth it brings freedom and fullness. As a man He knows we need grace and so His forgiveness flows to us each day.
