Seven Words Selected
I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD – Light is the guide and encourager along our path, the revealer of God’s wonders and the means of exposing wickedness. As the old evangelist said, "Turn on the light and watch the bugs crawl under the rug." All of the times and cycles of our planet depend upon the sun and yet the Psalmist goes on to say “in thy light shall we see light”. Without light nothing is fresh or healthy or nourishing. “For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. O continue thy loving-kindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart” (Psalm 36: 9, 10). The man of blind birth in John 9 was given eyes to see that Jesus, the gentle healer, was the beginning of blessing and not any institution of man.
