Rejoice and Walk in the Light!
Saturday, January 14
“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.” (John 8:12)
Today we continue to reflect on Jesus’ declaration that He is the Light of the World. As we do, we also reflect on the fact that God has shone His Light to His people throughout the world since the beginning of creation.
So, today, let us rejoice and walk in His Light. Let us reflect the Light of God as the moon reflects the light of the sun. God’s Light never stops coming for us, He beckons us to reflect His Light.
A powerful children’s song, “This Little Light of Mine, I’m Going to Let it Shine” reminds us to be that light of Jesus in the world and to carry God’s gospel in all that we say and do as we reflect on the hymn, “I Saw the Light”.
Prayer for the Day: Dear Jesus, thank You for being the Light of the World. Thank You for “enlightening” our minds with Your Word. Holy Spirit bring Jesus, the Light of the World, into our hearts and help us be transformed by His Light – we pray in Jesus name – Amen.
Personal Prayer: “Lord Jesus, You ask – “Who do you say that I am?” Lord, open my mind so I can understand who You are, and who I am in You.”
