Jesus Our Light and Life through the Holy Spirit

"For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light." (Psalm 36: 9)

Light and Life are one in Christ:

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (John 8: 12)

This life is granted to us through His Holy Spirit:

"He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." (John 7:38)


"But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified." (John 7: 39)

When Jesus was glorified, seated at the right hand of God the Father, His Holy Spirit was released to the world:

"3Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;" (Hebrews 1: 3)

Peter then announced to the Jews on Pentecost, who witnesses the outpouring of the Holy Spirit:

"33Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear." (Acts 2: 33)

Jesus is our Light and Life, both of which we receive by the power of the Holy Spirit.
