“I am the Light of the World.
He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness
but shall have the Light of Life.
Yet a little while is the Light with you.
Walk while ye have the Light, lest darkness come upon you.
  John 8:12; 12:35.

Now life comes before light, but if light does not follow life, life will die, as you may see in every buried seed that seeks for light as soon as life has begun its work, and reaches forth till it finds the sun. So it is with the soul of men. Life needs light whereby to live. Christ came not only to be the Life of the world, but the Light of the world.
