Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Light of the Glorious Gospel
    The god of this world hath blinded the minds
    of them which believe not [the unsaved],
    lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ,
    who is the image of God,
    should shine unto them.
    2 Corinthians 4:4
    Jesus is the Light of the Glorious Gospel. Did you see those two words: “Light” and “Glorious”? He is both the Light of the gospel and the Glory of the gospel. In a world where people are blinded by sin and where people are lost in the darkness of eternal night, Jesus is the Light of salvation; He is the Light of the gospel.
    Lord Jesus, when I saw the Light, I believed. When the Light appeared in my life, I followed it. Give me more illumination today so that I’ll know where to walk.
    Jesus is the Glory of the gospel. When the Shekinah glory cloud rested on the Ark of the Covenant, the priest had to leave the holy of holies (Exodus 40:35; 2 Chronicles 5:14). Humans couldn’t remain in the presence of the glory of God. Just as the Lord Jesus came to dwell among Israel, now He comes to live in the lives of His people. It is through His followers that He brings the light of the gospel to the world. It is not just a dazzling light that God wants unsaved people to see. He wants to bring the light of His presence into the hearts of unsaved people, so they can believe the glorious gospel. Remember that Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12).
    Lord Jesus, thank You for living in my heart. Shine Your light to the world through me. I want to shine You, the Light of the Glorious Gospel, to all people. Amen.

    Jesus is the light that gets people saved.
