Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The Creator - The Light - The Glory - Aseity
The Light Of The World
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
In the beginning, God revealed the truth of His identity when He said, “Let there be light.” At that time, there was no sun, moon, or stars. The proclamation of God’s Word produced a physical manifestation of light with God as the source of it. Since God is eternally self-existing and self-sustaining, this is easy for Him to do. Later, Jesus proclaimed that He is “the light of the world.” Jesus is the physical manifestation of God’s declaration. Jesus is the physical manifestation of the revelation of God’s glory. Jesus is the means by which people are able to escape darkness and enjoy the goodness and glory of God.
