Genuine Jesus - I AM The Light of the World

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world…” John 8:12

When we walk into a dark room, the first thing we do is turn on the light, or perhaps run into a piece of furniture with our foot if we don’t. Light is incredibly important to us, and we mostly take it for granted. We hit a switch and it’s there. We have motion detectors that turn on a light when we walk by. We look forward to the light of each day when the sun rises. The light from the sun makes things grow and keeps us warm. We complain when the days become shorter, because we want more light! Light is essential to us!

As we continue our “I AM” statements from Jesus, we remember that Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” This week we’ll look at what Jesus meant when He made that claim and what it means to us as His followers. His light is truly essential!
