132. “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12).
Those in darkness search desperately for light. Light is the oxygen of existence. It is the path to hope, the only means by which one can find his way. Jesus’ words underscore that He alone is the only route to real life, that all other paths leave one stumbling in the darkness. God is light, and Jesus is the only means by which He can be found. The struggle for many is two-fold. First, to see the darkness of their current path. Until such realization comes, there is no seeing Jesus as light. Second, to discover that there is only one Source of light. No other path reveals truth.
