Something to think about.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.John 1:6
John heralded the coming of Jesus as the Christ. Today some two thousand years later he is still doing the same thing. He is still proclaiming the truth of Christ. Only he is not alone; we stand alongside John witnessing and testifying about the Savior of the world. We the brothers and sisters of Christ, the adopted sons and daughters of God, are the light of the world. It is the life of Christ in us that allows us to shine, lighting the way to salvation which is Jesus.
