The Light – 9/19/20

John Arevalo

John 1:4-5 – “In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” 


Jesus is the source of life that brings light to shine. He is the source of life that brings light to the darkness. In Gen 1:3, light is the first evidence of God’s creation. And flowing from his deity, we see that Jesus is the true light to the darkness.

The word ‘darkness’ is generally used throughout the Bible to denote to sin. Ephesians 4:17, “They (sinners) are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in the, due to their hardness of heart.” BUT Jesus is the dominating light that gives true understanding. He is the one that illuminates our spiritual darkness into spiritual light. For with Him is the fountain of life, and in His light do we see light. This is the biggest evidence of Jesus’ life-giving source. Jesus’ life-giving power springs forth light to his people.
