Consideration of Biblical Scripture Preparing the Bride of Jesus Christ

Jesus: Light of the World

Jesus declared, “I am the light of the world.” (John 8:12)

Taken literally, I am drawn to the opening of Genesis, “Let there be light.” (Genesis 1:3)

I realize, Jesus is declaring it was He who called for Light to come into being.

In John 1:1-5 is written, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

When we are pressed to identify why we believe Jesus is divine, and not only a good or wise man who taught good principle, we can use these scriptures to say, ‘Jesus believed he was divine. So, was he a madman or a wise man?’

Those who have not yet been drawn will have some information to digest in their process.

Ready: Scripture says, ‘always be ready to give an account’.

Set: Prepared to share your faith with scripture and experience to back you up.

Go: Each day brings opportunity for divine encounter. Will you ask for yours?

Today a friend of mine from age 5 – we remained friends right from that first day in primary school – had a 60th birthday, just as I had mine in January. But there is a big difference. Instead of celebrating with friends and family as I did, Richard’s ashes were being buried alongside the graves of his parents both of whom I knew very well. Richard’s recent death was very sudden. His wife told me: ‘He was taken from us so suddenly there was no time to even say goodbye, but then I’m not sure either of us could have said goodbye to each other.’ Life is just so uncertain….it’s too short to waste, so we must do what we can to make a difference for the better in this world.

Bless you, David. So tragic the loss of a dear friend. Recently I was thinking about such things as:
if I had only 1 thing I could do today, what would it be?
I so often waste time.
Sudden loss reminds me to make each moment count.
God bless.
