One of Jesus’ well-known “I AM” statements was that He is the Light of the world (John 8:12). But we need to remember the amazing truth that by virtue of our union with Christ, He can then look at us and declare that WE are the Light of the world. Jesus doesn’t point to the brilliant scientists with sharp IQ’s and colossal intellects as the Light of the world. He doesn’t direct us to the people with the most power and money who control the affairs of our world. Jesus Christ looks at simple, humble, weak people who believe in Him and calls them the Light in this dark world.
