Word for Today
The Word (65)-the Word is the light of the world.
“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:5)
The Word of God is the light of this world. Without the Word of God, you go through this world in darkness. In darkness, your best friend could give you a slap without you knowing. In darkness, you experience agents of darkness and are prone to stagnation, diseases, frustration and hopelessness . With the Word, you have light:
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple” (Psalm 119:130)
Jesus is the Word of God. Jesus is the light of this world. Jesus declared:
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5:14).
Father, please help me to experience the light in your Word in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
