I am the Light

  • 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
  • The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. Is 9:2
  • For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.  Eph. 5:8
  • Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. I John 2:10

Questions: 

  • What does Jesus mean by the expression “darkness” in John 8:12? 
  • How do we follow Jesus?
