John 1:4 (NKJV) In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
Light and life. Just the phrase stirs up feelings of growth, joy, hope, happiness and energy.
Jesus is all those things and infinitely more.
He is the light of hope in a dark and dreadful world. He is life in the midst of death and disease. He is light that exposes evil, wicked intent and lies. He offers life for all eternity when we are faced with certain disappointment and death in a sin cursed world.
Make no mistake… apart from Christ there is only darkness and death. It may be camouflaged in a dim light, or temporarily disguised to fool you but in the end, without Jesus, there is no life, there is no light. Only death, despair, hopelessness, futility, blindness and total darkness (emotionally, spiritually and ultimately physically).
With Christ, nothing in this dark and dying world can take away our light and life (truth, growth, joy, energy for life, hope, and eternal reward).
In Jesus is Life. He is the light for all who will turn to Him.
Think It Over: Life is hard. I cannot even begin to imagine facing this life without the hope, light and life of Jesus. Jesus gives us purpose, reason, truth and direction. Jesus allows us to live ABOVE the circumstances of this life because we know that NO MATTER WHAT happens today, our eternal victory, destiny and reward is already won, and waiting for us. Life and light…
