Jesus is the light that shines in the darkness. The darkness is the power of evil and unbelief in the world, but they cannot overcome Jesus.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Jesus said, “ I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness” – John 12:46. As children of God, we have moved from darkness into light and joined the family of light, and as St Paul admonished us in the book of Ephesians 5:8 “for once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light.” The world have closed their hearts and minds to the light, and literally ignored and opposed it.
When the light of God dwells in us, we become the children of light. What will hinder us from going into the dark and being the light to a lost and dying world?
