Names of God: Light of the World
We often forget. We see throughout history the Israelites and the church forgetting. We need to be reminded often of who God is in Scripture, church history and in our lives and churches.
The names of God are important because these names are not just what God does, it is who He is. I hope this will encourage you as you are reminded of how good, great, and awesome our God is.
Light of the World
We see God throughout Scripture using "light" as a description of Himself.
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.” (John 8:12)
What it reminds me? Often, where Jesus went, he shined light into the darkness. As followers of Christ, we can point others to the light. Jesus as our light can direct our paths and bring peace even in the darkness.
