"I am the light of the world"

WHEN Jesus said to his disciples, "I am the light of the world," he was referring to the Christ, which he manifested so clearly; for many times he had proved unmistakably that the light of spiritual understanding dispels the darkness of mortal belief.

Jesus also said, "Ye are the light of the world." Here he was telling his disciples that they too had the power to reflect the light of spiritual understanding, a fact that means a great deal to Christian Scientists. In accordance with this statement, each one who has some understanding of the power and presence of divine Love reflects this same light; for as one begins to know the truth, to realize something of the allness of good and the nothingness of evil, he is beginning to dissipate the dark beliefs of materiality. Here we have the example of our beloved Way-shower, Christ Jesus, who through his love for God and man, his purity of thought and deed, his reliance upon Spirit and his clear conviction of the allness of God, trod a pathway which was illumined with light wherever he went, so that the darkness of sin, sickness, and death disappeared.
