Dearly beloved, Lord Jesus Christ is the light of the world.
The Bible says, “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned” (Isaiah 9:2).
It exhorts, "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you” (Isaiah 60:1,2).
As mentioned in the above Scripture verses, Lord Jesus Christ came into this world to show His light to the people who were living in darkness.
I present below the testimony of Sis. Anita Antony as how God brought her into light from darkness. She came all the way from Bangalore to attend a Jesus Calls Prayer Festival held in Chennai, India.
“For the past four years I was mentally disturbed, and hence I was living in darkness. I was deeply pained at people making fun of me. I felt as if I was covered by darkness. All my relatives started calling me ‘a mad woman.’ It was at that juncture my mother prompted me to attend the Jesus Calls Prayer Festival held in Chennai.
As desired by my mother, I travelled to Chennai along with her. During the first day of the meeting, I felt as if everything was dark around me. Hence I sat with much fear in a corner of that ground. During the prayer time Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran prayed saying, “Close your eyes and look up to Lord Jesus. He will surely dispel darkness from your life and send His light into your life.”
Accordingly, I too started praying along with her. At that very moment, I could feel a bright light piercing through me from my head to toe, and immediately I became completely normal. The pain in my body vanished. I received perfect healing. A bright light entered into my life which was covered with darkness. Praise the Lord.”
How true the following promise of God is: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12; 9:5). Lord Jesus Christ came into the world as a light. He wants to deliver us from darkness. Those who follow His commands and abide in Him will receive the light of life. He will dispel darkness from our lives and enable us to walk in the light.
Loving Lord Jesus,
You are the light of the world. I believe in You and choose to follow your commands. Help me to abide in You and walk in the light. Dispel darkness from my life and send your light into my life. Let your glory surround me. May I receive the light of life. Give me the grace to rise and shine for your glory.
In Your matchless name I pray.
