Point 1: THE LIGHT is a title of the Lord Jesus and what a remarkable title it is! Sometime we talk of people who light up a room with their smile or personality. He "Lights" a LIFE forever.
Point 2: In John 1, the WORD is the LIGHT - which explains how the Light dawns in the lives of Sinners. We know that the Lord is the "Logos" and words give understanding. He literally sheds light on every man 1:9. In John 1 light and life are brought together and just as light is necessary in the natural world for life - so He is necessary if a sinner is ever to have spiritual life.
Point 3: John 3 tells us that men love darkness rather than light and it tells us why, their deeds are in fellowship with the Prince of Darkness. A person who does the truth, is not afraid of Light because truth is in fellowship with the LIGHTGIVER.
Point 4: The Devil is opposed to The True Light ever reaching those he has duped. He knows what will happen. Use the example of Acts 9:3-5 Saul. The Light that shone spoke, Saul called the One who spoke, Lord.
