Then Spake Jesus

Have had the question asked of me recently “Who Are You Following?” Good question. The next one coupled with it makes an even more interesting consideration: “Who Are You Listening To?” The verse for this print is one many will be familiar with, John 8:12 KJV “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” We as humans do two things almost automatically – follow what we see (chase after) and look for what is making noise (hunting for). This verse addresses both of those items in a single verse. Jesus spoke the words to them, described what they would see and gave them an expected end – using both sight and hearing. My question to each of us is VERY simple and something EVERY one of us do – Why are you listening to the person whom you are following? Turned it around on you didn’t I? My purpose is purely motive – what motive do we have in listening to those who are influencing us? Jesus gave DIRECT purpose, painting both sides at the same time, giving positive and negative, then provides the motive. We each are being influenced and are influencing others – does Christ have that FIRST position as the ultimate WHO? Jesus said “I am the light of the world”… Our attraction should be more than just magnetic! There are 25 prints/designs in this Series “Light of the World” – see the rest of them at: http://delivertheword.com/lightoftheworld/
