Jesus Christ was the creator of life, and his life brings light to mankind. In his light, we see ourselves as we really are (sinners in need of a Savior). When we follow Jesus, the Light, we can avoid walking blind and falling into sin. He lights the path ahead of us so we can see how to live. He removes the darkness of sin from our lives.
If we live for Christ, we will glow like lights, showing others what Christ is like. We hide our light by being quiet when we should speak, going along with the crowd, denying the light, letting sin dim our light; not explaining our light to others, or ignoring the needs of others. Let’s be beacons of truth—not shutting our light off from the rest of the world.
