Sign up to the daily Lent reflections from Live Lent. Archbishop Justin Welby says:

The gospel is God’s rescue mission to bring us from darkness to light. This is the work of Jesus, the light of the world.

But Jesus is not the only one called the light of the world by this title. He himself turns to his followers and says, ‘You are the light of the world… so let your light shine.’

To witness is to let your light shine. A light shines simply by virtue of being a light. A follower of Jesus witnesses simply by virtue of being a Christian. We have been brought into his light, now he appoints us to bring his light to others. This is what witness is.

These Lent reflections take you on a journey through the Gospel of John and give you an opportunity to explore what the gift of Jesus and the challenge of Jesus mean for you, in the context of your daily life.

This week, thank God for the gift of life, and for the gift that is Jesus. And try to be a gift to others by letting some of God’s light shine through you.
