When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Stating that he is the light of the world, Jesus meant that his teaching would allow people to better see the correct pathway of life to follow. No one can see well in darkness, yet if you followed the teachings of Jesus you would be following the correct path in life, just as if you were never in darkness. Furthermore, by following Jesus, you would be able to stay on the correct path throughout life, to your final destination, eternal life.
Dear God, Jesus has promised that whoever follows him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. Please help us to follow and understand Jesus’ teachings, as he guides us through the light of life.
