That was the true light which lighteth every man was that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.
Continuing our discussion on the birth of Jesus Christ; today's focus on Him being the light of the world who was rejected by the world.
Jesus is the light of the world because He came to save lost souls from eternal damnation, but to all who hears and accepts His gospel message He lights their way into eternal salvation. One of Jesus' famous saying was that "the well doesn't need a doctor" only the sick. This means the spiritually sick who are still bound by sin and are separated from their creator and Savior.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the light and no man cometh to the Father except they go by Jesus (John 14:6). Jesus being the doorway to God the Father, begs the question, why would anyone reject Jesus given all He done in the Father's redemptive plan of salvation?
All who rejects Jesus remains marred in sin which blinds the person to his/her condition as sin makes a person feel good, which lack spiritual benefits to the person.
Jesus is the light of the world because He made the world and we must accept Him for who He is and His saving power.
The name of Jesus is like no other name on earth and in heaven.
