“In Him was life and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came for testimony, to bear witness to the light that all might believe through Him.”
If you are ever granted to see that light for what it really is, you will believe it. Everybody who knows the light is like John the Baptist: we have seen the Light and testify to it. We have been lifted out of the dark caverns of our sin and guilt and fear into the bright daylight of His grace. How can we help but spread the light.
To symbolize the coming of the light into our dark world and the spreading of the light through the world we will spread the flame of Christ light to all we come in contact with.
