The Father Revealed v

Jesus Is the Light for the World

12 Once again Jesus spoke to the people. This time he said, “I am the light for the world! Follow me, and you won’t be walking in the dark. You will have the light that gives life.”

13 The Pharisees objected, “You are the only one speaking for yourself, and what you say isn’t true!”

14 Jesus replied:

Even if I do speak for myself, what I say is true! I know where I came from and where I am going. But you don’t know where I am from or where I am going. 15 You judge in the same way that everyone else does, but I don’t judge anyone. 16 If I did judge, I would judge fairly, because I would not be doing it alone. The Father who sent me is here with me. 17 Your Law requires two witnesses to prove that something is true. 18 I am one of my witnesses, and the Father who sent me is the other one.

19 “Where is your Father?” they asked.

“You don’t know me or my Father!” Jesus answered. “If you knew me, you would know my Father.”

20 Jesus said this while he was still teaching in the place where the temple treasures were stored. But no one arrested him, because his time had not yet come.

unable to see
what is right in front of me,
not able to find the way
or backwards.


A match struck,
a switch flicked,
a flame burning brightly,
a glimmer of light,
a ray of hope.

your light.

Illuming my path,
filling my life,
showing your way,
you are the one
who knows the way to go.


I will guide you,
follow me,
step by my light,
this is not the way of darkness,
of shadows,
of fear;
but of brightness,
and love.

Walk with me
into all my future,
into your life.

Light of the World
