“The Light shines in the dark, and the dark has never extinguished it” (John 1:5).
Jesus is the Light of the world. We are to be like John, who said, “Make the way for the Lord straight” (John 1:23). Like John, we are to say, “Look! This is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). When we are faithful, we will see others being brought to the Saviour. At the beginning of their faith, they will be filled with the joy of the Lord. Like Jesus, we must teach them that there is greater joy, still to come: “You will see the sky open and God’s angels going up and coming down to the Son of Man” (John 1:51).
