Throughout the Gospel of John Jesus is referred to as, ‘the light’. John 1:9 says Jesus was, “…the true light which gives light to every one coming into the world.” In John 8:12 Jesus says, “I am the light of the world.” And John 12:46 says, “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.”
A few years ago I wrote and recorded a demo of a song, “Be the Moon“. Use the link to give it a spin. The chorus says:
I wanna be the moon and reflect the Son;
Fill the whole world with His glory and the wonder of His love.
To change the seas, and show the way;
Shine Your light into the darkness, turn the night into day.
So take this heart of stone of mine and ignite it with your grace.
I wanna be the moon.
Questions for today:
- If Jesus is the light of the world what do you see when His light shines in your heart?
- If Jesus is the light of the world what do people see when His light reflects out from your life?
Be the moon – reflect the Son.
