The Light of the World

“Again Jesus spoke to them saying, ‘I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'” John 8:12

We’re  in that dark season of the year when the days keep getting shorter.  We’re in a dark time, as well, as the coronavirus is still surging and our political leaders are at odds with one another. But light is coming into the world as well — the light of the world that we remember at Christmas — Jesus!  I’m reminded of this beautiful hymn written by Philip Bliss(1838-1876).  It was written for a revival meeting and was sung by Ira D. Sankey.  It remains a favorite today.  If your life is filled with darkness today, come to the light

For another hymn by Philip Bliss go to this post:
