He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. (John 1:8, ESV)This is a great reminder for all of us. We are not the light. We are not what people need. We are not people's hope. It truly isn't about us. We are simply to testify about the light.
One of my favorite aspects of being a witness to the light, and not the actual light itself, is that I can go out into the world and vocalize the truth (be a witness) and leave the "eye-opening" to the light. It is exciting. You never know what results are going to happen. The Spirit goes where it wants to go (John 3) and we don't always know. We simply speak about the light and then watch the light shine in people's hearts.
What a blessing to be a witness.
