"When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, '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 NIV)
candle gives light only by consuming itself. In this way, it becomes a vivid
symbol of the sacrificial love of Christ. By giving of Himself and His own
substance, Christ brought light and hope into this world.
