LIGHT

LIGHT - 1)The Bible frequently uses light as a symbol of God and of that which is good, that which overcomes the darkness of sin and death. Candles are used in churches to symbolize the light of Christ. Christians are lights shining in the world to show the way of righteousness and salvation (Matt. 5:14; John 8:12).

2) (an appellation or Title of Jesus)  "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."  John 8:12

"Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended."  Isa 60:20
Light of the world

"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." John 8:12

"I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; Isa 42:6

"That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." John 1:9
