Light of the World: Jesus is the Light of the World

(Begin with 1-2 minutes of silence)

John 15:6 (NLT) reads, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”

John Lennox, a professor of Mathematics at Oxford University and an international speaker on Physics and Philosophy, once took the opportunity to share the gospel with a man on the subway. The man responded saying something like, “With all of your education, you still believe in all of that ‘God’ stuff? Haven’t the sciences proved that God doesn’t exist?” 

Professor Lennox just smiled and asked a simple question: “Tell me, do you have any hope?” In an instant, the man was left speechless. His only response was, “Well, I guess we all just have to muddle along in life, don’t we?” The door was open for Lennox to share, “No, we don’t. There is reason to have hope. Let me share it with you.” 

Some days, we may try to find hope in the strangest of places. Other times, we may feel like there is no hope at all. But Jesus came to the world in order to be Light. He came to provide hope. Not just for one situation or season in life, but to provide hope for all eternity.  

READING & JOURNALING:

JOHN 14:6, PHILIPPIANS 1:6

How would you respond to somebody who asked you, “Do you have any hope?”

How would you express to somebody else the reason as to why they can have hope? 

 

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, all of my hope is in You and You alone. Today, I simply pray that the Light of who You are and the hope I have in You will be evident to all I interact with. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
