Who is this Son of Man?” So Jesus said to them, “For a little while longer the Light is among you. Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes. While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of Light.” John 12:34-36
The term Son of Man, is a prophetic term meaning the Messiah. The crowds, both Jew and Greek, wanted to know if Jesus really was the Christ? They were having a tough time reconciling that His coming would end with His death and resurrection. They thought His earthly kingdom would be established. Jesus admonition was ‘become sons of Light’. He is that Great Light. We are invited to walk with Him, believe in Him and become like Him. After all, God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.
Would others see me as the son of Light? Is there any darkness that is affecting my life?
God, as we walk together through this day, I pray that You will be my light and that I might reflect Your love in a myriad of ways. Thank you that I have a heavenly Father.
