A Lamp that burns and gives light to others

John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
[John 5:35]

A Lamp is known to everyone especially in the interior villages where they cannot imagine a day without a lamp especially in the night times. Even to us in the cities also we have a revised version of lamp which we call as candles. Now a days power cut is a normal scenario, and if its during night times then the first thing we go look for is a candle or lamp if we have one. I remember my parents buying a small lamp model in my childhood. IT was very similar to the one we see in villages. It needed fuel (kerosene) to burn, which we use to fill everyday as we have power cut regularly.

The verse in context also talks about a lamp and the use of it especially the heat (burned) and vision (light) that others around that lamp got. Now based on the above explanations we can highlight few words which are Lamp, Light, Fuel and Night. All these are very common words and we in our daily life either experience or talk about it. Have we ever tried to link all these and understand the deeper knowledge and revelation that these words have in them. Let me try to help you understand as per my knowledge.

Christ is Life... is Light

In Him (Christ) was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.
[John 1:4]

Life is very precious to all of us, and we have our own plans and thinking on how to make it the best in this world. in this fast life we tend to loose the purpose and destiny we all should keep in mind every time, which is that this life that we enjoy and say our is the life which is given to us from our Lord. He is our creator, and without him there is no Life in our Life. If we see the reference verse taken from John chapter 1 verse 4, we can see that apostle John highlights Christ to be the life or In Christ was life. If we can understand this text we can very well also interpret what is life...
