Light of the World

John 8:12 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.

This is a portion of an acrylic painting that I did a few years ago, called "Coming Into the Harbor."  I love to paint nautical scenes, especially lighthouses.  I hate the dark and have always loved the daytime...maybe that's part of the reason I love lighthouses...I guess also, it may be that a lighthouse always reminds me of our great Lord, who is the light of the world to all who will see Him (the saved).  When things get dark and depressing, it's a blessing to have the one true light of Jesus Christ to guide your way.

If you have not received salvation from eternal death and darkness, all you have to do is open your heart and eyes to the light of Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Savior.  In return for this, you will receive everlasting, wonderful eternal life with the One True God in Heaven.  You will also receive a peace that surpasses all human understanding.  Even though a Christian still has the everyday problems that everyone else has, we have this wonderful peace, in knowing that Christ is our Savior and that He is always with us through the presence of the Holy Spirit, guiding and protecting us through life, and preparing us for a wonderful eternity with Our Lord.

If you have any questions about all of this, please ask me....or visit a Bible believing can also check out my husbands blog "Settled In Heaven," which teaches about salvation and many Biblical principles. 

Please open your eyes and heart to Jesus before it's too late.


  1. God's words are the source of light that we would go to which provides comfort, promise, peace, joy and hope in the midst of a turbulent sea (sin, suffering, death..etc). The lighthouse is symbolically a great reminder for everyone of Who to turn to in the hour of darkness. Thanks you Eva.

  2. You have a wonderful talent of putting Bible verses into visual form. Just as a lighthouse guides the ships to safe harbor away from the dangers of the shoreline... so to our Lord guides us to our eternal home from the dangers of a sin darkened world. Thank you for such a great illustration of His work in guiding us!

  3. Thank you for allowing me to use this picture as an added feature in my blog posting: "Go To The Light". It enhanced my posting.... It was a blessing to use. Thank you. May the Lord continue to bless your blog ministry.
