John: Jesus Is The Light of the World

John 8:12-30

Darkness. What images does this word conjure in your mind? What feelings does it stir in your heart? We might recall being afraid of the dark as a child – or as an adult. In the Bible, darkness pictures danger, ignorance of God and His ways, of sin, of death, and even the “outer darkness” of God’s eternal judgment where there is “weeping and gnashing of teeth!” No wonder darkness can bring fear! Then, one day Jesus announced, “I AM the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Isn’t that good news? This (John 8:12-30) is what we’ll be looking at together this week!
