We all know who the Light of the world is: Jesus. Most Christians know this. But are we following Him to the extent that we ought, particularly in this time of His birth? We remember that His words to His disciples were, first, “Follow me.” His command is the same with us every day of our lives.
Questions for further thought:
1. Do we understand the impact of the words “follow me” as Jesus is asking us to do?
2. Do we understand the challenge – and the eternal rewards – of following Him?
Challenge: We all know that being a follower of Jesus is going to be tough. (He told us it would be.) But we also know that it’s the greatest service, and love, that we can offer to our brothers and sisters in this fallen world. We know He is the light of the world, and we must pray for Him to give us strength to help bring His light to the whole world. Pray that we do so as soon as we can, since so many lives are literally counting on it!
