Jesus is the light of the world

John 8:12

Again, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

“I am”

HE IS GOD

 

Ex. 3:14 – I AM WHO I AM (If I AM is sending you…)

 

Jesus is saying “I am God”

 

“The light of the world”

HE IS LIGHT

Darkness:

 

 

Light – represents – Purity, Holiness, Exposes, Directs, and Guides.

 

Of the World

 

Whoever follows (Lordship Salvation – Savior and Lord)

HE IS LORD

 

Whoever Follows

 

Luke 9:23-26 – And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. [24] For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. [25] For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? [26] For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. (ESV)

 

Luke 18:18-27 –  And a ruler asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” [19] And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. [20] You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.’” [21] And he said, “All these I have kept from my youth.” [22] When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” [23] But when he heard these things, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich. [24] Jesus, seeing that he had become sad, said, “How difficult it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God! [25] For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” [26] Those who heard it said, “Then who can be saved?” [27] But he said, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” (ESV)

 

Will not walk in darkness… WHY?  Because they are following Jesus

 

Will have the light of life
