Jesus is the Light
Today's devotion is based on John 1:9, "The true light (Jesus), which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world."
Light can represent many things but is mainly used to symbolize knowledge and revelation. In this text, the light (Jesus) brings true enlightenment to us because he brings us into a direct relationship with God. God is made known to us through Jesus' coming into the world as a human being and his great sacrifice. Our once dark lives are illuminated through Jesus. We are brought out of our sinful and ignorant state when estranged from God and into a new life reconciled with God, who continually gives us his light.
Please pray with me, Dear Heavenly Father; thank you for sending your only Son into the world to bring us the light. Thank you for making yourself known to us through him. Thank you for continually drawing us to the true enlightenment of your presence. Amen.
