“I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.” John 12:46 (NIV)
When Jesus Christ was here on earth He made many statements to explain why He had come. Our verse today is one of those statements. It is true that Jesus did a lot of teaching when He was here on earth to give those who heard Him new insight into spiritual truth. Many of His teachings were recorded and have been preserved for us in the Bible. Where we read His teachings our eyes are opened to see things in a new way. Yes, Jesus is still a Light fo us who have believed in Him. His teaching in the Bible gives us new insight often. And, we must not forget that He is living in us and His light is shining in our hearts and minds each day. Do we not have times which otherwise would be dark but are not because His light shines on our way.
