The Light of the World

What does Jesus mean when he announced that he was the light of the world? It’s easy to be so familiar with this kind of famous saying of Jesus that we lose sight of the power and insight these words once had. What we need to be reminded of is that this is far from just a nice religious platitude or sentimental thought, it was instead the declaration that everything had changed. In Jesus,

Israel’s long-awaited promises were being fulfilled in their midst. We, like the original audience who stood before Jesus, have our greatest needs revealed by this great light and ultimately find that he alone can satisfy. Listen to last Sunday’s HERE.

God in Christ has done everything He requires to reconcile sinners to Himself.
