Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [3/7]

Passage: John 8:12-20
Verse: John 8:12 (NIV 2011)
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.”

In this passage, the religious leaders were challenging Jesus because He was testifying on His own behalf.  Jesus defended His position.  After all, who could speak better about where He had been, where He was going, or what His purpose on this earth was than He could?  Something similar holds true for us, as followers of Christ.  Who can testify more effectively about our journey and walk with the Lord than we can?  May we be effective witnesses for Christ.  May others see how the light of Christ can change a life of a person… for the good.  Where there is darkness, may we be a source of light that will help others find Christ.  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
