Jesus Christ is the light of the world (John 8:12).
He is God.
Just as the sun is the light and life of the natural world, so Jesus is the light of the spiritual world.
Just as the sun’s light is everywhere on earth, so Jesus’ presence and glory is everywhere on earth.
God has given the sun to every person to keep them alive.
God has given His Son to the world, that man can receive eternal life (John 3:16).
Those who believe in Jesus know God.
They have eternal life, which is knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent (John 17:3).
If they continue on with Jesus, they will live forever.
Outside of Jesus, there is nothing.
Apart from Jesus, someone can do nothing (John 15:5).
Without Jesus, someone has nothing.
Without Jesus, a person is spiritually dead (John 6).
If they die without Jesus Christ, they go to eternal death.
Eternal life continues forever in heaven, a place of absolute glory.
Heaven is God’s home, full of the glorious splendor of His majesty and infinitely more.
Those who know Jesus as Lord have the divine nature and life of God. They have the supernatural, abundant, zoe life (2 Peter 1:3-4). They have the Almighty God living in and through them – and all around them.
Those who know Jesus can accomplish things that will last forever. They can store up treasures in heaven, They can do even greater things than Jesus did (Matthew 6:19-21, John 14:12).
Eternal death continues forever in hell, the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41).
Those who do not know Jesus have nothing. Even if they gain the whole world, they possess nothing.
Those who do not know Jesus can do nothing. Even if they conquer the whole world, they have accomplished nothing.
