LIGHT OF THE WORLD
Jesus 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)
In 1986, there was a woman by the name of Rose Crawford who had been blind for 50 years. Why? Because no one had told her that for twenty years her particular medical condition could be corrected by surgery. All she had to do was have someone tell her and then make the intelligent decision to do something about her blindness. When the bandages were removed from her eyes she wept with joy. Where there had been darkness, now there was light. She was not unwise, she simply had not known. Once she was told what she could and ought to do, she made the most of her opportunity.
So it is with Jesus -- the Light of the World. Follow Him and there is light. Refuse the opportunity and remain in darkness.
