Light of the World

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? 

Psalm 27:1
It is a beautiful commendation of Christ, when he is called the light of the world; for, since we are all blind by nature, a remedy is offered, by which we may be freed and rescued from darkness and made partakers of the true light. Nor is it only to one person or to another that this benefit is offered, for Christ declares that he is the light of the whole world; for by this universal statement he intended to remove the distinction, not only between Jews and Gentiles, but between the learned and ignorant, between persons of distinction and the common people.
 John Calvin

I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.
 John 8:12
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
We praise you, God, that the light of Christ shines in our darkness and is never overcome; show us the way we must go to eternal day.
