Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God
    For it is the God who commanded
    light to shine out of darkness,
    who has shone in our hearts to give
    the light of the knowledge of the glory of God
    in the face of Jesus Christ.
    2 Corinthians 4:6
    Jesus is the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God. Just as the Father shined out of darkness to give the world physical light, so Jesus will shine into darkened hearts to give spiritual light concerning Himself and His kingdom. Those who are blinded by sin live in a darkened world. They can’t find their way to Heaven; they live in a black, cold and threatening world. Spiritually blinded people are shut up to their own limited experience; they are lost and without hope. But Jesus came to give them the light of salvation. “[He is] The true Light that gives light to everyone...” (John 1:9).
    Lord, it feels good to live where there’s spiritual light. I can see spiritual things because of You. You have shown me how to live and what will happen to me when I die. Your light is warm and comfortable, and I am confident of the future.
    Jesus is the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God. He shines light on unredeemed cultures, which are lost in the darkness of self-worship and greed. Jesus helps spiritually blinded people see the plan of salvation. He shines light on the pathway to guide His followers. He puts a fire in their souls to give them hope for eternity.
    Lord, I love to walk in the Light, because I remember how awful I felt walking in darkness. I will walk in Your light for the rest of my life. Amen.
    Go Deeper: 2 Corinthians 4
    Jesus is the light who shows people where to walk.
