"As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world." John 9:5

Jesus is the Light that came into the world that was darkened by sin. Where there is his light there is life. But now that he is no longer in the world, where is the light? In his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said to those would be his followers, he said to us, "You are the light of the world."

The world is still dark and still in need of the light of Jesus. We must be reflectors of his light, as the moon reflects the light of the sun. He is the source of light, we are to live lives that reflect his light. Lights are lit for the purpose of dispelling darkness. To do that, the light must not be hidden nor obscured by dust or dirt. A clean reflector shines the brightest.

Lord Jesus, we thank you that you have shown your light to us and that your light shines in us. Cleanse us from anything that would prevent people from seeing your light shining through us. May we bring your light everywhere we go and to everyone we meet. For your glory. Amen.
