Series: Light of the World
Author: Randy Tomko
We find in Isaiah and in other prophecies that Jesus Christ is referred to as yes, as the light, but also as a servant of God. One who came to seek and save that which was lost, sitting in darkness, chained by sin.
Whoever you are at, do not forget that God’s grace is there still, right along with you! Realize that even when you feel there are no reserves left to fuel you on, that God promises to maintain you until those chains fall away, that door is opened, and the light that you can just see from a distance envelops you in its embrace.
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son[a] from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 (ESV)
9 As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”3 Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. 4 We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” 6 Having said these things, he spit on the ground and made mud with the saliva. Then he anointed the man’s eyes with the mud 7 and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing.
