“Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life”. – John 8:12
The Lord Jesus was unequivocal and succinct in His communication as to His personality and identity. He was never apologetic. No wonder the Jews and others in His days couldn’t resist or gainsay the wisdom with which He spoke. In the Scripture above He said, “I am the light of the world”, remarkable! He didn’t say, “I have a light for the world,” or “I know of a special light somewhere for the world,” He said “I am the light of the world, he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John8:12).
John described Him as “…the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (John 1:9). There are other lights in the world, but Jesus is the true light! As long as you’ve received Him into your heart, and follow Him, you’ll never again walk in darkness. Why is that? It’s because the true light now shines from within you.
Light is that which describes; in other words, it shows you what exists (Ephesians 5:13). If you entered into a pitch darkroom, with no flicker of light, even though that room may be beautifully adorned with state of the art décor, furniture and electronic gadgets, it would be impossible for you to see and appreciate their beauty. That’s because there’s no light describing or showing you the things present in that room.
In the same way, when a man doesn’t have Jesus in his life, it’s impossible for him to know what true success, fulfillment, peace and prosperity are. Such a fellow gropes in darkness and in utter hopelessness-journeying aimlessly, with a ticket to nowhere. Restless will he be until he finds his rest in Christ Jesus, Who is the True Light that lights every man that comes into this world. He’ll light your life with success, peace, health, joy and prosperity.
Recognize Jesus today as the light of your life; recognize Him as the only true light that can guide you in the right path; hearken diligently to His Word, for His Word is light (Psalm 119:105).

Dear Jesus, you’re the true light that lights every man that comes into this world; therefore I recognize you as the only true light that guides me in the path of success, victory and greatness! As I hearken diligently to your Word and practice what it says, my whole file is flooded with light; I’m directed in the path of progress and prosperity. Amen.
