Are you excited about all the ways our Lord is described? Every day when I select a description to share with you, I have a renewed sense of awe. Often the way our Lord is described is a contrast to that which is in the world. Such is the case today. Many in our world are living in spiritual darkness. They are seeking to be “enlightened” by powers apart from Jesus Christ. But in John 1:9 we find the word “true” in reference to Jesus. Although there are many sources of “enlightenment,” there is only one TRUE LIGHT: JESUS CHRIST. He enlightens our soul, mind, and heart when we turn to Him. The world apart from Christ is dark. Take seriously His charge to let His light shine through you. His Light in you is a beacon to those living in darkness.
Lord Jesus, You are the TRUE LIGHT who enlightens every man. May we be light houses through whom You shine.
“There was the TRUE LIGHT which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.”
