John 1:6-13

Jesus is the radiant light of the entire world.  Three things to help us see this:

1. John the Baptist gave off light (6-8)- John only came to testify, and people thought he was the Light!  How much brighter is the Light!

2. The Light got brighter than it already was (9)- The light was in the world, but the Light was coming into the world in a new way, to be even brighter!

3. But the Light had been bright enough (10-13)- The Light was rejected as a whole, but was still bright enough to save some, whether it was Abraham or Rahab or Josiah.

But the beauty of verse 9 is that even though the Light was bright enough to save, the true light that gives light to every man still came into the world to be even brighter!
