20/20 Insight-Jesus, Light Of The World

February 18th, 2020 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on Jesus as the Light of the world.

Jesus said in John 8:12, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

There are two key points that we can learn from this statement regarding Jesus’ followers.

The first point is that following Jesus is a step-by-step journey. He leads the way, and we follow Him. As we follow Jesus, we can hear His voice more clearly by staying close to Him in relationship.

The second point is that Jesus is our source of light. His divine wisdom is greater than human reasoning, and is the guidepost for our lives that leads us to abundant and eternal life.

Focusing on Jesus as the Light of the world gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian life.

Eye On Integrity-Walking In The Light

July 27th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on John 8:12.

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Darkness is a place of confusion, despair, and death. Those are the places where sinful choices lead us. But there is a way out of the darkness. Jesus is the source of light. He brings clarity and direction where there was once confusion. He brings hope that overcomes despair. He puts us on the road that leads to heaven. He knows how to guide His followers to their eternal home.

Darkness is overcome by light when we follow Jesus.

Walking in the light of Jesus’ footsteps is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
