Light of life
For mariners in treacherous seas, the light from a lighthouse may be the difference between life and death.
Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”
Just as the lighthouse lights the way for ships, so God’s word, found in the Bible, lights our pathway through life.
Jesus is referred to as the Word in John’s gospel and he also speaks of himself as the Light of the world: "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
Knowing Jesus means the difference between life and death.
