“I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life”.
~ John 8:12
“These words imply that the world needs light, and is naturally in a dark condition. It is so in a moral and spiritual point of view: and it has been so for nearly 6,000 years. For this state of things, the Lord Jesus Christ declares Himself to be the only remedy. He has risen, like the sun, to diffuse light, and life, and peace, and salvation, in the midst of a dark world. False lights on every side invite man’s attention in the present day. Reason, philosophy, earnestness, liberalism, conscience, and the voice of the Church, are all, in their various ways, crying loudly that they have got “the light” to show us. [Yet Christ] only is the true light who came into the world to save sinners, who died as our substitute on the cross, and sits at God’s right hand to be our Friend”.
