DAY 21 TUESDAY: JULY 2020

LIVE YOUR LIFE BY GOD’S LIGHT!

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 (John 1:4-5).

Jesus Christ is God’s light for mankind in life. He is the light of the world. When you are living without Jesus Christ, you are living in darkness no matter your influence, personality and status of life. The Bible says in the opening text that 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. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he needs to live his life daily by God’s light which is the Word of God in life. Hence, the light of God which is God’s Word is personified in Jesus Christ who is the Savior of the world in life forever.

The Bible explains vividly without controversy that Jesus Christ is the Light of the world in life. That is why the Bible says in John 8:12, “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Therefore, whenever a Christian walks with Jesus Christ who is indeed the Light of God’s Word, he can never stumble nor walk in darkness. Jesus Christ who is the Word of God is also God’s Light of life. Without Jesus Christ in your life, you are totally submerged into the realm of darkness in life. Life that is devoid of Jesus Christ is equivalent to absolute and total darkness in life forever.

Jesus Christ is God’s Word made flesh unto man in life. God’s Word is a light unto man’s feet and path in life. A life devoid of God’s Word is a life full of darkness and sorrow. That is the reason why the Bible says in Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” In fact, whenever a Christian allows Jesus Christ who is the Word of God and the Light of the world to become a lamp to his feet daily, his path and destiny in life will indeed be lightened up for everyone to see in life. When God’s Word becomes a lamp to your feet, your life is full of light both physically and spiritually in life. Therefore, a Christian is expected to live his life by God’s Light forever. 

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to live his life by God’s Light which is Jesus Christ, the Savior and the Word of God in life forever. Shalom!
