How does the person and work of Jesus make him the light of the world? How are we to live as lights in a dark world?
Jesus came to save the world; all of creation is in darkness from the Fall and awaits His redemption.
Jesus shines as our example and our only hope of salvation in a dark and fallen world. This light is kindled in the heart of every believer and should be shared with everyone.
As Christians we are called to reflect Christ, the Light of the World, and expose the darkness through truth in love. We are also called to stop the moral and spiritual decay in our culture through our words and actions.
