Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Light of the World

Light of the World
Jesus our light,

light of the world;

world in darkness,

darkness has stood.

True light has come,

come so we’d see;

see the right path,

path unto Thee.

Place trust in Light,

Light that will last;

last shall be first,

first will be passed.

Those in the dark,

dark hides what’s true;

true is His word,

word that guides you.

You are children,

children of Light;

light meant to keep,

keep hearts set right.

“Then Jesus told them, ‘You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons(daughters) of light.” – (John 12:35-36)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your Son to be the Light of the world. Thank You that in Him, there is no darkness. Jesus, thank You that while we were still shrouded in darkness, You came close and shined Your light, so that we could become children of light. Forgive us for letting our light grow dim, or for keeping it hidden where we are meant to shine. Lead us and guide us in Your way, so that we may shine brightly before all who are stuck in darkness. May Your lasting love be found through the radiance that shines through all who remain in You. May many come to know Your light, so that they too, may leave darkness far behind them. Let sparks spread quickly, so that our flames will burn bright unto You. Amen.
