Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world.”

John 8:12

Light is all around us. It’s what we know, it’s what we’re drawn to. Light reveals truth. We can see everything with the lights on. Nothing is hidden. Everything comes out in the light…

Darkness is the absence of light. Darkness disappears when light appears.

Lesson 9: (Depending on your child’s age you can talk to them about this exercise or do it together, we don’t want to frighten our little ones!) Find a flashlight and a good dark space that has a light switch, like a closet. What do they see with the switch on? Everything. What do they see with the switch off? Nothing! What happens when you turn on a flashlight? It helps us see in the dark.

Jesus is the light of the world! He is the reason and source of the Light. And He is always there to guide us when darkness appears, like the flashlight! Please cut out the verse in back of the book (John 8:12) and display it as a reminder that He is the Light!
