John 1:4-5 - In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. NASB
The people in this world who will accept Jesus as the Light of the world. He will give them spiritual Life. John 8:12 - Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."
John 12:36 - "While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of Light."
It is Christmas time and for many this is known as a time to give gifts. I would like to encourage all of my readers, if you have not given yourself the gift of Life through Jesus Christ the Light of the world, now is the time.
If you already have given yourself the gift of Life then by all means please share this gift with others, and as you share, remember this one thing:
One of the saddest things I have experienced in my life time is sharing the gospel with people and them not allowing the Light to shine into their life.
I can remember equating this event to the lyrics of a song sung by the rock band known as the Eagles. The song was entitled "Already Gone." The lyrics are as follows:
"Just remember this my girl when you look up in the sky
You can see the stars and still not see the light, that's right."
I could tell them about Jesus the Light, but they were not able to comprehend what I was saying. In other words, I was not able to lead them out of the darkness and into the Light. They could see the stars but they couldn't see the Light, Jesus Christ the One who made the stars.
Also, it is my prayer that anyone you shine the Light on will be led out of the darkness and will truly see the Light of the world, Jesus Christ.
Think on These:
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Life is 10% what you make it and 90% how you take it.
