Today’s Bible reading is John chapter 8
(Read the entire New Testament in 2014 by reading only one chapter each day)
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” By presenting Himself as the Light of the world Jesus is inviting us to come to Him. His light exposes our sin and reveals God’s Holy character. As we come into the light we are able to worship God for who He is and know Him. We no longer walk in darkness but we have light that shows us how to live. We come to know God and are transformed into His image. Not only does God invite us to come to the light, but also He sends us to carry the light. Jesus said, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” We must take every opportunity to witness about the light and help carry the light of the Gospel to every nation in the world. There should be a sense of urgency upon us as we realize the door of God’s grace will soon be closed.
Prayer: AW Tozer encouraged this prayer, “Say to God, Father, I am sick of being a common Christian. I’m sick of only being halfway. I want to know You.”
