His Light in you
In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. John 1:1-5
The world was in darkness when the Lord Jesus Christ came in the flesh. He came to provide light. His light was to dispel darkness. It is only in the existence of light that life is sustained. In the creation account, God called out first to have light so that there will be division between light and darkness. John asserts that in Christ there is life both here and now. He is both the source of physical and eternal life. Those who experience life from Christ because they have trusted Him as Lord and Savior are the ones capable of walking in the light. When God lives in you, you have His light. God expects you to let His light shine so that it will guide you and those around you. He wants you to see the direction He wants you take as well as those around you. When people are estranged from God, they are blinded and will find it difficult to find God. Satan, the Prince of Darkness, will continue to convince people to remain in his dominion. It will even try to dispel the light but just like what John said, “Darkness can never extinguish it.” God provided life in its fullness so that you could live in His power. The light in you is a gift from God that others need to receive. It is the prospect of Christians living in the light that victory over darkness is experienced. In this way, Christians become a powerful witness of their confession that they are followers of Christ. Though the world in its darkness will always resist the light however there will be those that will be attracted and will believe God. What you do with the life that God gave you is crucial. Be grateful that God gave you the privilege so He could express Himself through you. Choose to let His light “shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father” (Matthew 5:16).
