"I am the Light of the world"

Exodus 3:14
"God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you "
Matthew 5:14-16
"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven"
John 8:12
"When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life"
2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
Reflection
Our God is Light, and He does not mix with darkness. Instead, He shines with His glory. In His presence, everything is revealed for He is God of truth, and there is no darkness in light. Sometimes, darkness may overshadow us for we have sinful nature. If we follow God, we will never be in darkness. He will shine onto us, and we will have Light in us. Then, what comes out of us will be Light. Let us be the mirrors that reflect His Light to others, so others can also see and He will be glorified.
