REIGN IN THE LIGHT
Main Text: John 8:12 “…… I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in the darkness, but have the light of life.”
Isaiah 60:2 “… the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you”.
Reign is the exercise of sovereign power. Jesus Christ is the light of the world according to our main text for today. He himself is the light that darkness cannot overcome. So to reign in the light is to reign in our Lord Jesus Christ. This means following Him for whom he is and being so taken with Him that you join yourself to Him and in so doing, you have Him, and He being the light of the world, you reign in the light.
Notice the last phrase of verse 12 “you will have light of life”. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. The life Jesus has and the life He shares with those who follow Him give them light. The life of he who reigns in the light is illumined by the Light. In our world today, when good is often considered bad and bad is seen as good, when truth and error are switched around and people are looking for direction in life, can you be the one who shines the light of Christ in the world?
This reign therefore is the one that will involve us judging even the angels as Paul tells us in (1 Cor. 6:3) Sin should no longer have dominion over us.
JESUS IS THE LIGHT THAT DARKNESS CANNOT OVERCOME; BASK IN HIM. Prayer: Father, thank you for the light of the world, help me to reign in HimBY BISHOP NGOZI DURUEKE (HE REIGNS CHAPEL INTERNATIONAL) To send your testimony, write us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
