Jn 1:4-9 “In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.”
LESSON - In the first few verses, light is used to refer to holiness, truth, and understanding. In the latter versus, Truth is personified to refer to Jesus. He IS holiness, truth, and understanding. It is for that reason, sinful men rejected him upon his arrival and continue to reject him today. Just like John, we are called to bear witness to His light which we hold within ourselves. The Lost around you will never know that they are in darkness until the light of Christ shines brightly through you. Mt 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
