Certainly, it’s true! Our world can seem incredibly dark at times. There are days when it appears like evil will prevail. There are weeks and months when it looks like goodness will be crushed. BUT, there is hope in all this darkness: JESUS!
Jesus is light. And one day, during His earthly ministry, His true essence broke through and transformed His whole being. Matthew 17:2 says of Jesus, “He was transfigured before them: and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light.”
Jesus did not change into something that He was not; He simply allowed His “God-ness” to shine through. Jesus is God. God is light. Therefore, Jesus is light. Light, the very essence of Who He is, is the hope for this dark world.
The original transformer is the God who became man Who became God. Jesus is the light and hope for this world.
