Verse of the Day ~ John 12:35-36

Verse of the Day

So Jesus said to them,

“The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.”

John 12:35-36

In our verse of the day,  Jesus refers to Himself as the light as He was spending time with His disciples the last week of His life.

My parents had a print hanging on the wall in their study of a very old painting called Light of the World. It was Jesus when He was a baby, and I was always intrigued by it since my folks were not active believers.

It was in high school that I came to know Jesus as my Savior and the real Light of my life . . . He is truly the Light in a very dark world.
