I am the Light of the World

Light is both a wave and particle. It is an amazing substance and science is still quite mystified about exactly what it is.

But we know that Jesus is the Light of the world, that shines in the darkness, which does not comprehend it.

Light can be a beam, like a laser, that concentrates power into a pinprick illumination that can shatter kidney stones. It is very precise and powerful.

Jesus likened this laser beam to a possible destructive force within our selves and the body of Christ; his kingdom. He said not to use the laser beam on the Inside of the city walls but Outside, where the enemy is. I felt He meant both within the Church as well as ourselves. If we beam the laser onto each other we can destroy our own people, fellow believers. Likewise we can harm ourselves.

Just because we mightn't fully comprehend all that another is saying in His name, doesn't mean it is not so. The darkness (or the non-light) may be in us, so don't attack what you don't necessary understand. Instead be prepared to be stretched and to grow into greater understanding.

I will help you. Who is this "I". He is Holy Spirit: our teacher, our guide, our comforter. Will you allow yourselves to be taught? Will we humble ourselves to receive new/fresh understanding; New Light? If you seek His face for wisdom and truth, will He turn you away?

We can choose to remain in the darkness, not comprehending and resisting the light. Are we Seekers and Believers or are we modern day Pharisees? Hearing and seeing but not believing. If so- then we are of our father the devil - not God. And He will say I don't know you, depart, workers of iniquity.  Repentance is Required!

The words that we speak are powerful. They can be a power for good or a power for evil. He keeps bringing to mind the necessity to be careful of what I say and speak. Blessings not curses to those around me. Only speak strong words if given permission.
