The Fascination of Light

Life Without Light

Fascinating Light | First Claim | Second Claim | World without Light

Paul J. Bucknell

There is a fascination with lights, is there not? Jesus is the Light of the World" (John 8:12) so what is life without the Light?

“Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying,
‘I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life’” (Joh 8:12).

When I was looking for pictures in my computer for the sun, I couldn’t find any direct pictures of the sun. I was so surprised, for though I have many pictures–over 20,000, interestingly, I have none of the direct sun.The sun is extraordinary in its brilliance, so when I take pictures of the sun (now that I think of it), they are really only photos of the light upon other objects such as clouds, fall leaves, photos.

It dawned on me (pun intended) that we can walk around this world and not really look at the Light that we are so dependent upon. The sun affects practically everything we do, where we go, what time we do things, what foods we eat. I use the sun for practically everything and very appreciative of it, but rarely do I pay attention to it. We can live our lives forgetting the benefits that come from our sun.

The same is true for Jesus, the Light of the World. We can walk around in life–in darkness Jesus calls it, but be oblivious to Him, the Giver of Light and Life. My life was so very different before I became a follower of Jesus. I lived without really observing His importance in my life. He was there–everywhere benefiting me–but I did not recognize or respond to Him.

• Is it possible that you are busy with your life and plans, but don’t really acknowledge the One who made and cares for you?

• How would the father like it if the son or daughter never acknowledged the way the father cared for him or her?

Jesus came for a purpose. As the light, he showed the path to life by dying on the cross for peoples’ sins. This is where the Light became Love and the blend of the two become a beautiful scene which I, never want erased from my soul’s memory.

The sun was made through Jesus but it only remains as a temporary teaching point. Jesus is the Light of the world, blending love and light into a bright hope.

This concludes this message. Contact me below with any salvation questions.
