The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Radiating His Light

“On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining.” 1 John 2:8 (NASB)
Jesus is the light of the world, but His followers must shine for Him in the darkness of a corrupt world. The Greek word for “light,” phos, is seen in the name of the chemical element “phosphorus,” which means “light-bearing.” Christians are call to be light bearers for Christ, radiating His light in our daily lives. Light illuminates, so we should dispel error. Light guides, thus we should lead people to righteousness. Light attracts, therefore our lives should cause others to take a closer look at Jesus.
True believers are children of light, we walk in the light, we possess the Light, we have been translated into the kingdom of light. Therefore, “the true Light is already shining.”
