Apply

Jesus encourages the people to recve Him, His testimony and His life.  Some do and are saved.  Many don’t and cause a fuss instead.  Jesus then tells them that the lies they are believing and speaking come from the devil…even though they have actually accused Him of being demon possessed.  I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to be trying to save a person and have them shouting at you that you have a demon.  Remember, sometimes those whom we are called to help don’t know how to receive it. 

Yield

Lord, I do not want to walk in darkness and need Your light to see. 

Extra Discovery

Jesus spoke 7 major I Am statements in the Gospel of John.  This text is one of them.   When He did so, He was telling the people who He was like God did in Exodus 3:14. 

Revelation

Jesus challenges the doubters with the primary point that they do not ‘know’ God the Father and He does.  This is where faith begins and it is what helps it persevere.  Do you Know God or just know about Him?  God gave Christ to be the Light so we can know Him.
