If we're not experiencing this light-filled life Jesus spoke about in Jn. 8:12, there are some practical things we can do about it. We've seen that we need to remove distractions around us. But there is another, more proactive thing that we can do. If we want to experience more light in our lives, we need to spend more time with the light-giver.
Jn. 1:4 In him [Jesus] was life, and that life was the light of men.
Jn. 1:9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
Jesus referred to Himself as the Light of the world. It's not just something He does... it's who He is! As we continue to come to Him, we'll begin to experience more of this abundant, light-filled life He has for us.
